Brooklyn Cookie Takedown
Nothing quite gets me in the holiday spirit then enjoying the baking labors of others, and what better way to sweeten up your Sunday, then the annual Cookie Takedown at Bell House. The Takedown has been testing the culinary prowess of Brooklyn since 2005 and has branched out to chili, fondue, bacon, and curry. Being a total glutton, I’ve always liked the idea of “all you can eat”, but I can never quite make it past the first 2 or 3 servings. I always need to bring a friend to be the “closer” on sushi boats and soul food buffets.
The master-bakers have been chosen with 30 amateur chefs baking their way to the finish. 10 bucks gets you in the door to try them all, and of course the obligatory egg nog to wash it all down. Layer up and face the snow to get there early for free egg nog for the first hour and the let the cookie wars begins!
