Taking place at the resort’s picturesque, oceanfront restaurant, AGUA by Larbi, the exclusive menu prepared by Chef Christopher Kostow and Chef Larbi Dahrouch features Napa Valley inspired cuisine with ingredients highlighting the bounty of the Baja region.
A Michelin-starred chef before the age of thirty, Christopher Kostow takes a thoughtful approach to food drawing upon his own American upbringing and the bounty of the surrounding Napa Valley. Christopher’s cooking focuses on seasonality, utilizing ingredients from the nearby farm that he and his team operate for The Restaurant at Meadowood and the recently-opened The Charter Oak.
Chicago native, trained in kitchens far and wide: from a Paris bistro to the Michelin-starred Le Jardin des Sens in Montpellier. Upon returning to the States, Christopher worked as sous chef under Daniel Humm in San Francisco. He soon became Chef at Chez TJ in Mountain View, California, garnering the restaurant many accolades including two Michelin stars.
Upon arriving at Meadowood in 2008, Christopher maintained two Michelin Stars, was nominated for Best Chef: Pacific by the James Beard Foundation and named as one of Food & Wine Magazine’s Best New Chefs 2009. In 2010, Christopher garnered a rare four stars in the San Francisco Chronicle and was soon awarded the highest ranking of three Michelin Stars from the esteemed 2011 Guide. Christopher is the second American-born chef and third youngest chef ever to receive three Michelin stars.
Christopher and The Restaurant team have since retained the three stars from Michelin, as well as the four stars from San Francisco Chronicle. In 2013, Christopher was awarded Best Chef: West by the James Beard Foundation, and honored as a finalist for Outstanding Chef in 2017. Ten Speed Press published Christopher’s debut book, “A New Napa Cuisine”, in October of 2014, which was awarded “Book of the Year” by the International Association of Culinary Professionals in 2015.
