On Saturday (12/12), Fairweather got a head start on our holiday celebrations at a cookie swap, hosted by Stephanie Nass, a dear friend and Founder of Victory Club. (She was recently featured in our November CAVU edition, and will be sharing a holiday cookie recipe in our December Holiday issue coming out at the end of this week!) The event was hosted at Geary Contemporary, an art gallery currently featuring Michael Meehan’s latest series, “Ice Bather.” We enjoyed seeing familiar faces, and also had the opportunity to meet many new, wonderful friends.
There was a plethora of delicious cookies, which made for a sweet afternoon. Our team brought homemade chocolate chip and peanut butter cookies, and we enjoyed sampling everyone else’s treats. Every type of cookie was represented, from homemade chocolate-dipped shortbread, to peppermint crusted sugar cookies from Neuman's Kitchen. Other photogenic cookies were provided by Studmuffin, Brookie's Cookies, and Amy's Bread. There were even emoji-inspired cookies from Eleni’s New York! As we savored our cookies, we sipped on champagne, provided by G.H. Mumm, which paired perfectly with Victory Club’s savory comté cookies.
After a great afternoon, we left feeling very satisfied, and now have a lot of new recipes to try this holiday season!
Stay tuned for Fairweather's Holiday Issue, coming later this week, for a killer gift guide and interviews with some amazing people.
