Letter From Our President

Dear Dames,

Les Dames d'Escoffier is built on a bedrock of service and volunteerism dedicated to influencing the rise of women to the top of their chosen fields in the culinary and hospitality professions. As it was 40 years ago when our organization was founded by Dame Carol Brock and a cadre of exceptional women, the role of Les Dames d'Escoffier's New York chapter remains committed to service -- and to providing a wellspring of education, mentoring, networking, career trends information and scholarship support to our current members as well as to those deserving women who will become our future members.

It is this ethic and commitment to service that we all share.

As noted by the renowned Dr. Albert Schweitzer: "I don't know what your destiny will be, but one thing I do know: the only ones among you who will be really happy are those who have sought and found how to serve." read more

Best regards,

Joan Brower
