LUCCA_FamousChocChip

This holiday season, LUCCA Café in Irvine and Provenance Restaurant in Newport Beach are joining forces to conduct a county-wide search for the Best Holiday Cookie. The public is invited to submit their most prized cookie recipe through Sunday, November 30th and Chef Cathy Pavlos, owner of both sponsoring restaurants, will select five finalists to go head-to-head in a “cookie showdown” in December at Provenance. With the help of a panel of judges, Chef Cathy will name one cookie the winner and award its baker a $1,000 cash prize!

The public is invited to submit a recipe and photograph (optional), along with name, age, and city of residence, via email to mona@moxxepr.com. The entries will be collected through midnight on Sunday, November 30th. Five finalists will be notified and invited to a final judging during which their cookies will be evaluated on taste, appearance and holiday spirit. Finalists must be present at the final judging to qualify for the $1,000 prize.

Details about the final event and the judging panel to join Chef Cathy to determine the winning entry will be released in November. Those interested in following details may refer to the Facebook pages for LUCCA and Provenance.
