EDGE Restaurant & Bar unveils its macaroon Christmas tree
In honor of National Cookie Day, EDGE Restaurant & Bar unveiled a twelve-foot Christmas tree made from macaroons today, at a reception introducing new general manager Matt Barber.
Exec pastry chef Christopher Jordan.
The tree will remain on display until New Year's Day.
The project was spearheaded by executive pastry chef Christopher Jordan, who -- along with his crew -- spent sixty tedious man hours gluing all the macaroons to the hollow structure. Not so coincidentally, January 1 is the pastry department's favorite day of the year, since that's when they move the tree to the loading dock and take a sledgehammer to it in order to get rid of holiday stress.
Jordan, a graduate from the Culinary Institute of America in Napa Valley, has been with the restaurant since it opened in 2010, and has celebrated the holidays there every year with a special treat.
