Lest ye forget that Christmas is mere months away, The Restaurant at Meadowood seeks to remind you with the release of its impressive culinary lineup for their annual fundraiser and chef series, The Twelve Days of Christmas at Meadowood. This year will mark the series' eighth season, as distinguished chefs travel to Napa from around the globe to join the team in chef Chris Kostow's three Michelin-starred kitchen, including Daniel Humm (Eleven Madison Park, NYC) Christian Puglisi (Relæ, Copenhagen) and local notables Joshua Skenes (Saison) and Kyle Connaughton (Single Thread, slated to open in Healdsburg in fall 2015).

From December 4 through 19, each of the visiting chefs will collaborate with Kostow to create a once-in-a-lifetime menu, paired with wines from Napa Valley wineries. Tickets this year will cost $495 per guest ($750 per person for tickets at the chef's counter, which is located right in the kitchen). And before sticker shock sets in, remember that the series benefits two Napa Valley charities: The Holly Cranston Memorial Fund, which is dedicated to helping children with disabilities and their families, and the Napa Emergency Women's Services, an organization providing refuge for women and children who are victims of domestic violence.

Here is the esteemed lineup, which traditionally ends with a meal from host-chef Kostow on the twelfth night:
