Meadowood’s 12 Days Of Christmas Chef Lineup Proves That Christopher Kostow Is Your True Love


So what if it’s muggy and hot and rainy and your air conditioning broke and you don’t want to wear pants today? Christmas will be here before you know it, and at that point you’ll want to go to the 12 Days Of Christmas dining series, hosted by three-star Michelin chef Christopher Kostow and The Restaurant at Meadowood to benefit Share Our Strength. (Man, Kostow is not only Not Racist, he’s also Food Santa.)

This year, the lineup involves Super Famouses (David Chang! Andy Ricker! David Kinch! Mark Ladner!), Super Talents (Tim Cushman! Nicholas Balla!) and Super Chef Foreigners (Rodolfo Guzman!) The full lineup can be found below, courtesy of Eater, and lest you think that Christmas doesn’t exist in California, this video from last year’s events will make you feel all snowlike and tingly inside. We wish it was Christmas todaaaaay.
