SCOUTING OUT CREATIVE COOKIES

Twenty-six local restaurants created sweet or savory appetizers or a cocktail, using Girl Scout cookies. Ally Glavas and Newt Brown were co-chairmen. Music was by Jordan Law with Spunk Adams. Lance McDaniel was emcee.

The judges: Judging their favorite dishes and drinks, along with guests at the party, were Dave Cathey, The Oklahoman; Russ Johnson, Ludivine; Shelby Sieg, The Pritchard; David Rackley, 84 Hospitality Group; Loretta Barrett Oden, Native American chef; and Victoria Kemp, Florence’s Restaurant.

The winners: Winners were Jarrod Friedel (Guyutes, Judges Choice: Sweet); Eric Fossett (Scottie's Deli, Judges Choice: Savory & Judges Choice Drink); and Stephen Schmidt & Robby Vernon (Hacienda Tacos, People’s Choice).

The proceeds: Proceeds from the event benefited the Girl Scout Gold Award Scholarship Fund.

A STUDY IN HISTORY
