Cookies, cookies, and yes more cookies! Phoebe got into the holiday spirit by celebrating with a holiday cookie contest offered to Phoebe Terrace residents and staff.
According to interim director of dining, Mike Vargo, “the contest gives our residents and staff the opportunity to showcase their culinary skills, and share their treasured family recipes with their friends at Phoebe.”
First, second and third place winners were selected based on creativity, presentation and most of all… taste!
Phoebe resident Jean Iobst, grand prize winner, created the peanut butter temptations! Jean has enjoyed participating in many Cura and Phoebe inspired events including last year’s Phoebe’s pie contest where she earned second place for her peachy cream cheese pie!
Cura staff also created their tasty treats (not included in the competition!) but for all to enjoy! Dennis Rivera, Cura sous chef, impressed us all with his pistachio chocolate biscotti, gingerbread iced cookies and macaroons!
