Holiday Baking Contest

On Tuesday, December 15th, at 8:00 pm, please join the Lawrence Committee for a holiday cookie- and dessert-baking contest! The contest is open to all Lawrence residents, and the top three contestants will receive prizes from Kitchen Kapers or Williams-Sonoma. Non-bakers can participate by sampling the treats and voting for their favorites. We will also have wine and soft drinks for the enjoyment of all!

If you are planning to enter the contest, please email the Lawrence Committee ( so that we have a rough idea of how many dishes to plan for. If inspiration strikes at the last minute, however, feel free to bring an entry on Tuesday even if you have not emailed in advance.

International Food Cook-off

It was a standing-room only event when the Lawrence Committee sponsored an international food cook-off on Sunday, February 22, 2009! Contestants competed in three categories–appetizers, main dishes, and desserts–and the winner in each category (determined by a vote of formerly hungry graduate students) took home a prize from Williams-Sonoma. Thanks to all who participated!
