One year ago, I met Erika Davis from Season 1 of Top Chef, “Just Desserts”. We were co-judges at a recipe contest at the San Marco Theater in Jacksonville, Florida. She is one of the most talented and nicest people that I know in the culinary industry. We chatted about the whole Top Chef experience. Since then, we’ve become great friends. A couple of months ago, Erika started a company called The Ultimate Cookie Dough Company. All of her proceeds benefit Culinary Wonders, which provides scholarships and cultural experiences for culinary school students. The cookie dough company consists of three people: Erika, her sister Cydney, and her Mother.
Her cookies won major praise on the show. So much that they called them the Ultimate Cookie. I wanted to help, so we brainstormed about how Blue Bamboo could partner up with The Ultimate Cookie Dough Company. During the month of May, Blue Bamboo will buy cookie dough from the Ultimate Cookie Dough Company, and offer each one of our guests an “Ultimate Cookie” at the end of their meal. Hopefully, people will love the cookies enough to buy some dough from Erika, and help out some deserving culinary students.
