It's a cookie plate that would make Santa swoon, as a group of L.A. chefs including Chef David LeFevre, chef/owner of Manhattan Beach Post, have teamed up to create the ultimate cookie plate to raise money for the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank.
LeFevre, who has a holiday tradition of baking St. Nicholas Day Cookies, invited a group of his fellow chefs to participate in a special cookie round-up last year. With the success of last year's event, the tradition continues this year with a new line-up and a new array of cookies.
This year, chefs from seven restaurants will be preparing and swapping cookies so that all seven restaurants can offer the LA Chefs Cookie Swap Plate on Sunday, December 3. The cookie plate will sell for $20.
The cookie lineup includes:
Chef/owner, Manhattan Beach Post
St. Nicholas Cookies, flaky dough with almond filling
