December is a month filled with family, holiday parties and eating—lots of it. If you didn’t partake in National Cookie Day last week (the official day of observance was Tuesday, Dec. 4), there’s no need to cry into your glass of milk: SoDel Concepts is taking their love for desserts to a whole new level by offering decadent varieties at all 10 of their restaurants for the entire month of December.
The promotion is meant to showcase the skills of Dru Tevis, the company’s new corporate pastry chef. “These incredible desserts demonstrate—in a very delicious way—that we are taking our dessert program to the next level,” says Scott Kammerer, president of SoDel Concepts.

Tevis is a graduate of the French Culinary Institute in New York (now the International Culinary Center) and kicked off the promotion with cookie plates designed for each restaurant. The restaurants’ chefs contributed recipes, and in some cases, they made most if not all the cookies at their establishment.
No two plates are alike. At Catch 54 in Fenwick Island, the plate includes strawberry brownie bites, thumbprint cookies, gingersnap cream pie with bourbon buttercream and caramel nut bars. Lupo Italian Kitchen in Rehoboth Beach is selling persimmon empire biscuits, hazelnut baci cookies, tiramisu chocolate truffles and gianduja-walnut brownies.
The restaurants will introduce new dessert specials each week but will run the cookie plate option all month. Check the restaurants’ Facebook pages for details.
