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. 

To the annals of great bakery hybrids like the cronut, duffin and cretzel, add the churro croissant from Los Angeles bakery Pitchoun! A flaky pastry dusted with cinnamon sugar and filled with vanilla custard cream it combines French sophistication with the childlike joys of theme park eats. Originally put on the menu for the month of November, the churro croissant has been extended through January and, perhaps, beyond.

 

Just when you think there's nothing new in the world of breakfast cereal comes this innovation from chef Joey Maggiore, owner of the three Hash Kitchen breakfast spots in Scottsdale, Arizona: cereal shooters. Maggiore creates a boozy take on the milk that has been soaking in a bowl of Captain Crunch, Cocoa Puffs, Fruity Pebbles or Cinnamon Toast Crunch. Added to the frothy milk are, respectively, hazelnut liqueur, coffee liqueur, fruity vodka and spiced rum.

 

The iconic Crustacean Beverly Hills is event-ready.
