Les Dames d'Escoffier New York

Dear Members
Off to at great start, we had our annual event at Morrell Wine Bar, ‘Welcome to 2015’, on January 5. Thanks to Dame Roberta Morell for providing Morrell Wine Bar & Cafe, a charming location in Rockefeller Plaza, with great food and wines. The Rockefeller Center Holiday Tree was glorious! Photos can be viewed in our Photo Gallery.

The Program Committee will hold another of our famous Salon events, on Wednesday, March 11.  It will explore the exceptional accomplishments of Dame Ariane Daguin, founder and owner of D’Artagnan.

With Patricia McCann as interviewer extraordinaire, we will learn the details of Ariane’s fascinating life.  The invitation is going out soon. These programs sell out in the blink of an eye, so be sure to sign up as soon as possible.
