Twelve Chefs of Christmas


Cross out “12 lords a leaping” on your Christmas list because this holiday season it’s all about the food at Will Gilson’s Geppetto. The modern Italian eatery tucked into Cambridge Crossing is hosting an impressive lineup of your favorite chefs for a 12 Chefs of Christmas dinner series, and it’s the perfect excuse to treat yourself or a foodie you love to a night out.

Mark off these three Sundays on your calendar in December: the 3rd, the 10th, and the 17th. Each evening will feature a festive prix fixe menu created by four different guest chefs, including Tony Susi (Bar Enza), Erin Miller (Urban Hearth), Dante De Magistris (The Wellington, Il Casale), Colin Lynch (Bar Mezzana and Shore Leave), Alexis Babineau (The Lexington), Rachel Dykes (Puritan & Co.), Jamie Bissonnette (most recently of Toro, Coppa), Louis Dibiccari (SubRosa), David Bazirgan (UNI), Tracy Chang (PAGU), and, of course, Gilson himself and his trusty pastry chef Brian Mercury.

There’ll be some thoughtful drinks pairings, plus you can add extras from the in-house beverage menu if you want to add a little something something. These dinners cost $120 per person and you can grab your tickets here; each evening kicks off at 6:00pm, which will give you plenty of time to do a little East Cambridge holiday shopping before the fun starts. Check out the schedule below and be sure to follow Geppetto on IG for updates throughout the holiday season for updates.
