On Thursday, October 8, the proprietors of Auray Gourmet cheese shop and restaurant in Larchmont opened their doors to eighteen budding young chefs from Junior Girl Scout Troop 1825 of Larchmont-Mamaroneck. Co-owners Carolynn Dilworth and Ben Aiello along with Carolyn’s daughter Katarina provided each of the girls with a hands-on cooking lesson and topped off the evening with a sweet treat from the soda fountain.
Ms. Dilworth guided the girls through the steps to prepare a variety of omelets. The cooking lesson was a step towards achieving the Girl Scouts Bronze Award. Each scout had the opportunity to cook and eat her own omelet. Some of the Girl Scouts were eating omelets for the first time and were pleasantly surprised at how delicious they were.
When asked about her cooking experience, scout Julie Stowell replied, “ It was fun and very delicious!”
Joanna Tobing May, the troop co-leader added, “It was very generous of Carolynn and Ben to support our Girl Scout troop and we are very appreciative of their kindness.”
The meal was followed with homemade gelato. At the close of the evening, the scouts cleaned up, in the true spirit of scouting. The leaders found it was a valuable experience for the girls – one they will always remember.
