Of course, eating all of those cookies had a nobler purpose. By paying a $6 entry fee, attendees of the Comicazi Cookie Clash 2011 were supporting the programs of Boston Partners in Education.
Over the course of the night we raised over $1,250!
Eighteen bakers from all over Boston baked two dozen each of chocolate chip, bar, and wild card cookies in an attempt to capture glory and fabulous prizes while supporting Boston Partners’ work in the Boston Public Schools!
We also had a People’s Choice Award, encouraging all of our attendees to select the one cookie they felt truly passionate about. Appropriately enough, that honor went to Meredith Plourde’s Raspberry Passionfruit Shortbread Bars!
We’d like to thank all 18 of our bakers for taking their time to make the amazing cookies our guests enjoyed! A huge thanks, also, to our sponsors:
- Comicazi – for the space, the idea, prizes and staff!
- Crescent Ridge Dairy provided all of our milk, and was really enjoyed by everyone – not a drop was left!
- Dave’s Fresh Pasta, Flour Bakery, Gaslight Brasserie, Pizzeria Posto, Shaw’s, the Somerville Theatre and Taza Chocolates for the amazing prizes for our winners!
We’d also like to thank our super judge team:
- Matty Baker
- Caitlin Bottego
- Michael Burke
- Michael Caveney
- Dan Cleri
- Isabelle Leao Deslandes
- Matt Gamble
- Elizabeth Ginsburg
- Scott Long
Finally, a huge thanks and shout-out to everyone who helped us to promote this event! At least half of our bakers and the majority of our guests came thanks to:
