For the sixth year, SoDel Concepts is featuring its Girl Scout Cookie dessert promotion. On Feb. 13 to March 14, each of the company's 10 restaurants featured a dessert made with a flavor of the cookies.
The friendly contest between the company's chefs will hit a sweet peak on March 14, when all the desserts will be served from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Clubhouse at Baywood in Millsboro, one of SoDel Concepts' restaurants.
Admission to the March 14 event is free and open to the public, and each guest will have five votes with which to pick their favorites. The chef will the most votes gets Matt's Girl Scout Cookie Cup, named for SoDel Concepts' founder, the late Matt Haley.
The month-long promotion raises money for the Girl Scouts of the Chesapeake Bay.
“We give $1 from each dessert sold to the Girl Scouts,” said Scott Kammerer, president of SoDel Concepts. “But we also buy hundreds of boxes of cookies so that we can make the desserts. Our guests look forward to this promotion — and the event — each year, so we have to be well-stocked.”
