She may model some of the world’s most stunning fashion ensembles, but last night Karlie Kloss traded in her couture for an apron while she played host to the FEED Projects’ “How to Gift²” Holiday Party! Joined by FEED co-founder Lauren Bush Lauren and Milk Bar founder/chef Christina Tosi, Karlie took her talents to the Tasting Table Test Kitchen where she rolled up her sleeves to give guests a lesson in healthy holiday baking. Surrounded by trays of raw cookie dough and yummy toppings, the model chef dished on a few of her baking pointers, all the while helping guests to prepare their own batch of Karlie’s Kookies.
Much like ourselves, Karlie couldn’t resist taking a nibble or two of the Kookie dough before popping it into the oven, but really who could blame her! With both her Perfect 10 chocolate chip and sinfully sweet 5Boro dark chocolate Kookies on display, there was more than enough temptation at hand. Good thing that with each cookie sold, five meals are donated to children in need!
“I can’t really choose a favorite, it’s like children and you can’t pick between children” said Karlie. “I am a big fan of the Perfect 10 frozen in the morning. I like to eat it on my way to work. It’s life changing!”
Of course, Karlie wasn’t the only A-lister getting in on the baking (and eating!) fun, as fellow model chef Chrissy Teigen and fiancé John Legend also stopped by for the intimate gathering that included appearances by Rachel Roy, Cynthia Rowley and Erica Domesek of P.S. — I made this….
Aside from all of the sweet treats, the holiday baking bash also featured a special walk-through of FEED’s latest holiday campaign that offers up a non-traditional gift guide focused on making the most of your holiday purchases. With such stations as “How-to Create a Giving Tree” featuring the brand’s charitable ornaments, and “How-to Escape the Madness” highlighting FEED Guatemala’s Spring bag collection on display, guests got a sneak peek at gifts that truly keep on giving. Each of the FEED products are made with environmentally-friendly or artisan-made materials, the proceeds from which go towards providing meals to those in need worldwide.
With a few charitable presents under our tree and a batch of Karlie’s Kookies set aside for Santa’s visit, we just might end up on the Nice List after all!
