The Twelve Days of Christmas

Each year we seek out and invite those chefs both here and abroad who speak to a positive, personal and dynamic way of cooking; chefs whose restaurants and work weave a narrative only they can tell. The Restaurant kitchen, acreage of Meadowood and its surrounding gardens and vineyards will serve as a meeting ground for shared ideas and cross fertilization.


The 2014 celebration benefited two local charitable organizations: The Holly Cranston Memorial Fund and Napa Emergency Women’s Services (NEWS).
