Les Dames d'Escoffier New York

Dear Members
BLVD BISTRO HARLEM SUNDAY SUPPER EVENT
Joan Bloom reports, “The Dames and guests who enjoyed the Sunday Supper at BLVD Bistro in Harlem on June 7th were treated to an array of delectable Southern dishes inspired by the Chef/Owner Carlos Swepson’s Mississippi roots, and were enhanced with unique touches that reflect his culinary training and creativity. BLVD Bistro’s setting is at once homey and spirited, and showcases Harlem as the center of a restaurant renaissance that we all plan to revisit. It was a sensational event. Many thanks to Dame Ursula Massoud for Paumanok’s 2014 Dry Rose, and to Dame Nora Favelukes for providing the red and white wines from Argentina.“ Event photos can be found on LDNY website gallery and Facebook page.


DAME SHIRLEY ALPERT, EMERITUS MEMBER
This month the Board voted to make Dame Shirley Alpert an Emeritus member. She is currently in a long-term care facility in Forest Hills and Dame Jane Kettlewell reports she's doing well, but confined to a wheelchair.  If you wish to pay her a visit or send a note, see the complete June President's Letter for address. I am sure that she would be most grateful.


Best regards, Linda Lawry

LDNY’S SCHOLARSHIP EVENING: JULY 21, 2015 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Event Chairs Kathleen Sanderson and Margaret Happel-Perry have outdone themselves in gathering prizes for the fund-raiser raffle.  Scholarship Chairs Karen Goodlad and May Matta-Aliah and the committee have worked non-stop for the past month to select the recipients, give them the good news and create the evening’s presentation. It is one of the proudest moments of our year. Please be there to share in the honors and festivities.


CALLING ALL DAMES!
Dame Jenifer Lang of The Green Tables Committee shared this announcement: "Do you have free time during the day and would like to support our efforts to help Wellness in the Schools? Please consider volunteering at any one of the schools to assist chefs teaching healthy recipes to children in the classroom. This involves helping to prep ingredients, pass out samples and aid children in preparation of the menu. A list of schools with locations, times and contact information can be found HERE. Thank you!
