Top chefs from the San Francisco Bay area and Napa Valley will be featured in a series of cooking programs at The Ahwahnee Hotel in Yosemite Park starting in January. The 15th Annual Chefs' Holidays series includes cooking demonstrations free to any park visitors, plus, for a charge, meet-the-chef receptions and five-course banquets at The Ahwahnee, winner of Wine Spectator's Award of Excellence for its wine list.

Each of the eight sessions features three chefs, among whom are Napa Valley stalwarts Ken Frank of La Toque, Fred Halpert of Brava Terrace and several chefs from the Culinary Institute of America at Greystone. Bay area chefs include Hubert Keller of Fleur de Lys, Nancy Oakes of Boulevard and Roland Passot of La Folie.

The series begins Jan. 9 and continues through Feb. 3. Complete information is available on the park concessionaire's Web site: www.yosemitepark.com/events. For reservations, call (559) 253-2001.
