The Restaurant at Meadowood has announced the star-studded lineup for this year's installment of the 12 Days of Christmas, the restaurant's famed guest chef series. As in previous years, they've drawn together a roster of international culinary talent, including Esben Holmboe Bang (Maaemo, Oslo, Norway), Virgilio Martínez (Central in Lima, Peru and London), Alinea's star chef and creator Grant Achatz and many more. The list includes one local notable, Corey Lee of Benu and the newly opened Monsieur Benjamin, in addition to Meadowood's own Christopher Kostow, who traditionally cooks on the final day.

The series gets started on Friday, December 5. Tickets start at $395 per person ($750 per person for chef's counter tickets), and though it may seem like too early to start planning for the holidays, you might consider snagging yours early. As with last year, proceeds from the event will benefit both The Holly Cranston Memorial Fund, which helps children with disabilities and their families; and the Napa Emergency Women's Services (NEWS), which provides support for victims of domestic violence.

Without further ado, here's the full schedule and lineup:
