There was plenty of snow this weekend to make things a pain in the tookis to get around, but you best believe that didn’t stop Marcia Selden Catering, Winston Flowers, OmNomCT, a select crew of judges, 8 talented bakers, and a huge crowd of tasters from hitting up the 1st Annual Ultimate Holiday Cookie Contest!  This is true devotion, you know?  Nor rain, nor sleet, nor snow storm can stop voracious cookie enthusiasts.

When we arrived, Winston Flowers (already a beautiful shop in downtown Greenwich) was decorated so festively.  We met up with Nicole Straight and Robin Selden of Marcia Selden Catering and immediately went into the back room to meet the judges.  Chef Plum of Plum Luv Foods, Robin Selden from Marcia Selden Catering, Lisa Maronian from Sweet Lisa’s Exquisite Cakes, and John Barricelli from SoNo Baking Company were all ready to eat the cookies set upon the judging plates.  But, they couldn’t eat quite yet…
