Cookie Good, a Santa Monica gourmet bakery opened by husband-and-wife team Ross and Melanie Canter, has become a favorite sweets caterer for local movie studios, talent agencies, game developers and tech companies. Cookies, bars and brownies—including gluten-free options—are offered in 100 rotating flavors, from Caramel Pretzel Chocolate Chunk (the most popular) to Pancakes & Bacon. Labels and flavors can be customized and the sprinkle colors of the Birthday Cake Cookie personalized to match a company logo.

Cookie Good has wrapped cookies with custom logo labels for Hula, Facebook, Microsoft, Pixar and Sony, among others. They created a new flavor for Bad Robot Productions, the company co-owned by J.J. Abrams that’s behind hits like “Alias,” “Lost,” “Westworld” and “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.” A spin-off of its red velvet cookie, it has dark chocolate chips, Heath Bar bits and M&M “eyes” that match the robot logo. 

California is one of the most abundant agricultural regions in the world, but a startling number of residents aren’t always sure where their next meal will come from. According to Feeding America, the nation’s largest network of food banks, one in eight Californians struggles with hunger. The situation is especially startling for children; one in five is food insecure.

Hunger is not a supply problem, it’s a logistics challenge. And the meetings and events industry is full of logistics-minded people who are in a position to chip away at it.

 

There’s gold—and a Frank Lloyd Wright-designed meeting center—in them thar hills.

 

A new gem in the central coast.
