NAPA— Animal boys Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo were not the only LA cheffers to participate in this year's 12 Days of Christmas at Meadowood, an annual gathering of top chefs wherein each gets his/her own night to create a menu of choice. Also joining in the festivities was Providence's Michael Cimarusti. Hit up Eater National for the full gallery of hot shots. [Eater National]
