Girl Scout cookie season is almost upon us! To kick it off and celebrate 90 years of Girl Scout Camp, Girl Scouts of Western Washington has stoked the imagination of local chefs and bartenders by challenging them to dream up sweet and savory dishes and cocktails inspired by their iconic boxed offerings. Chera Amlag of Hood Famous Bakeshop will top coconutty Samoa cookies with a mash-up of Savannah Smiles lemon cookies and calamansi (a type of Filipino lemon), Dahlia Lounge pastry chef Brittany Bardeleben will craft a Trefoil Trifle, and chef Jeff Maxfield (Space Needle, Chihuly Garden and Glass) will create braised short ribs topped with a gremolata consisting of Thin Mint cookies, cacao nibs, fresh parsley and mint, and black lava salt. Plus, there’ll be Trophy Cupcakes, Hello Robin cookies, Full Tilt ice cream, a faux campfire fashioned from cookie boxes, and an Airstream trailer with wine and a photo booth. If you love Girl Scout cookies, as you should, don't miss this chance to see them shine in a whole new light.
