December 2008, The Twelve Days of Christmas

Now, I know money is super tight for a lot of people right now. But for some folks, it isn’t. And for those with a little dough to spare, this event is going to tempt you something fierce. ~THE TWELVE DAYS OF CHRISTMAS~ is a Meadowood signature event, when twelve renowned chefs from around the country collaborate with twelve of Napa Valley’s preeminent vintners to present holiday feasts on twelve December evenings. The event is an amazing fundraiser for Share Our Strength, a 24-year-old national organization working to make sure no child in America grows up hungry. Maybe a dinner can be a holiday gift for your honey?
