Fashion + Food: Band of Outsiders is cookie-crazed
"If you don't like cookies, you might not have a soul," reads the header of Scott Sternberg's cookie blog.
Sternberg is the designer of the Los Angeles-based clothing company Band of Outsiders. When he's not dressing up celebrity friends in his label's latest getups, Sternberg likes to blog about cookie finds far and wide.
His reputation for being a cookie connoisseur has caught on; for the last two Fashion's Night Out events, Sternberg has teamed up with Momofuku Milk Bar pastry chef Christina Tosi to brainstorm cookie concoctions. This year's creation was a Mexican wedding cookie made of peanut butter and toasted, ground pecans, dished out at Opening Ceremony's FNO party at the Ace Hotel.
Last week, at the Mandrake Bar in Culver City, Band of Outsiders hosted a book signing for the anticipated release of Tosi's "Momofuku Milk Bar" cookbook, which unleashes Tosi's cookies, pies (crack pie, anyone?), cakes and ice creams in recipe form.
Sternberg's personal favorites include Momofuku Milk Bar's blueberry and cream cookies as well as its corn cookies. Also on Sternberg's cookie-obsessed mind is his mom's fresh mandel bread.
