Welcome to the home of the New York Chapter of Les Dames d'Escoffier International-the premier, invitational, non-profit organization of women leaders dedicated to education, advocacy, and philanthropy-through the support of its partners and members in the food, fine beverage and hospitality industries.
Wishing you and your families the merriest of holidays and good health and happiness in the new year!
On July 17th, Les Dames d’Escoffier’s New York Chapter granted scholarships to seventeen future female industry leaders attending nine culinary and wine schools. The event was held at NYU’s Rosenthal Pavilion overlooking Washington Square Park. Among the scholarships were a newly established one honoring LDE founder Grande Dame Carol Brock, and one in memory of Dame Aileen Robbins. Carol was sufficiently recovered from a recent illness to attend and movingly addressed the audience. Aileen’s daughter was also present. As each recipient was recognized, a 15-second video describing her career aspirations was shown, adding a wonderful audio-visual element to the proceedings. read more
