The Benjamin, a luxury hotel in midtown New York, has paired up with Food Network Chef Geoffrey Zakarian and his team at The National to offer the “Little Holiday Chefs” package, a culinary-driven hotel experience for families.

Starting at $329 a night and valid through December 30, 2011, the seasonal offer includes breakfast for up to four at Chef Zakarian’s award-winning grand café, The National; one dozen freshly baked gourmet cookies from The National’s Executive Pastry Chef Marisa Croce delivered to the family’s room or suite; and a holiday cookie decorating kit with sprinkles and icing.

“We are very excited to be able to present this opportunity with Chef Zakarian's restaurant to our guests,” said Andrew Labetti, general manager of The Benjamin. “Whether it's enjoying the holiday window displays on Fifth Avenue or spreading icing on delicious cookies from The National, we strive to help our guests celebrate the spirit of the season in New York City.”

“As a chef and father, cooking with my daughters is the best part of my day, but watching their eyes light up as they decorate their holiday cookies is the highlight of the season,” said Chef Geoffrey Zakarian of The National.
