Membership into Les Dames d'Escoffier is by invitation. Each prospective member must be recommended and sponsored by two Dames who are in good standing in the New York chapter. As such, the number of candidates accepted each year is limited.
To be eligible for consideration, potential candidates must:
♦ Have achieved distinction and high professional stature
♦ Be a leader in the food, fine beverage or hospitality industries
♦ Have a minimum of ten (10) years of experience in their chosen field
The membership process is held each year in the spring. Candidates who meet our criteria are encouraged to attend several of our events throughout the year, as a guest of a Dame, to gain an understanding of our organization and to get to know our members.
