The Twelve Days of Christmas 2017

Chef Christopher Kostow, Director Nathaniel Dorn and The Restaurant at Meadowood team returned in December to host the ninth season of The Twelve Days of Christmas®. Our twelve-day charitable celebration invited influential chefs from around the world to cook in collaboration with Chef Kostow, utilizing the products and inspiration of the Napa Valley.

This year’s celebration benefited Saint Helena Preschool for All, Inc., a local non-profit organization providing scholarships to three and four-year-old children. The Restaurant at Meadowood donated $2,000 in honor of each participating chef, plus 10 percent of every dinner ticket sold.


In the spirit of the Holiday Season, guests were encouraged to bring unwrapped toys to the event which were then distributed to the children of the Napa Valley for Christmas.
