Les Dames d'Escoffier New York

Dear Members
We’ve had a nice, quiet August.  Now we’ve become very eventful!

The New Members Induction Dinner, chaired by Dame Sharon Franke, is guaranteed to be one of the high points of the year. We have a stellar group of new members joining us, and we’ll be welcoming them into our organization in great style. Lafayette restaurant is elegant, with a delectably creative menu. Our dinner will be held in their vaulted private dining room. Please show your support of LDNY by sending your rsvp ASAP! Plans are moving ahead for “The Next Big Bite”, with an impressive panel of experts will predict the future of the food world in 2016. Prepare to be amazed! Mark You Calendar. Our Annual Meeting is on Monday, November 9, 6:00 to 8:00 PM at the International Culinary Center on Crosby St. It is important for every LDNY member to attend. There is no fee for this event.  Refreshments will be served.
