One of my favorite co-workers and friends, the lovely and talented Maria B., is constantly dreaming up ways to make the office a more creative (and in this case delicious), place to work. She’s organized two annual company-wide contests; the pumpkin carving contest, and the holiday bake-off competition Batter up.
And by organized, I’m taking about glossy marketing materials to promote the event hung all around the opera house, occasional celebrity judges, and the coveted prize of the golden spatula.
Maria also collects a voluntary tasting contribution that supports the NY Food Bank. Thanks so much Maria for all that you put into these events and for creating such a wonderful tradition.
These are some of the highlights:
Maria & Jordana’s French Macaroon Tower
Dining Detour’s Mint Chocolate Brownies (recipe coming soon!)
Das Rehingold Cake
Hoping to share recipes from some of the above soon! Happy Holiday baking to all.
