Letter From Our President

Meet Our Newest Members, Induction Ceremony And Dinner

Dear Dames,

Do you remember the day of your induction into Les Dames d'Escoffier? No doubt you were feeling excitement, pride, and gratitude for the opportunity to be included among an inspiring community of high-achieving women in the food, fine beverage and hospitality industries.

Now imagine the feelings of this year's inductees -- a group of 17 inspiring women eager to join our organization and to meet and network with all of you. These are extremely impressive women at the top of their industry, rich in experience and filled with enthusiasm.

Please honor these women and all those who have come before at the LDNY Induction Ceremony and Dinner on Monday evening, September 24th. It will take place at Grande Dame Lidia Bastianich's exciting, newly opened Eataly NYC Downtown, dubbed a "high temple of la dolce vita."

Individual introductions and biographies of our amazing new Dames, can be found HERE

Best regards,

Joan Brower
