Our diets loudly curse the curators of this Holiday Tasting and Book Signing event for bringing together our favorite Brooklyn sweet-makers under one roof, while our taste buds lean over and whisper, “Thank you.” Family? Love? Whatever. The best part of the season is gorging on baked goods, and today you can sample artisan chocolate from Liddabit Sweets, the daintily crafted confections from One Girl Cookies, pies, glorious pies from Four and Twenty Blackbirds, creative fare from Ovenly, and trendy treats from Baked, whose new cookbook, Occasions, features an entire section on Christmas cookies. For entertainment, some more sweet things out of Brooklyn — authors Emma Straub, Teddy Wayne, and Diana Spechler will share seasonal stories to get you in the holiday spirit.
