Welcome to the home of the New York Chapter of Les Dames d'Escoffier International-the premier, invitational, non-profit organization of women leaders dedicated to education, advocacy, and philanthropy-through the support of its partners and members in the food, fine beverage and hospitality industries
The winter and flu season are (mercifully) passing swiftly. I hope it has been a good and productive one for each of you.
Members engaged in LDNY's many important committees have been working diligently to develop interesting activities and programs that help attract, inform and enlighten each of you, while fulfilling our mission to support -- through scholarships and mentoring -- the next generation of women leaders in gastronomy, fine wines and beverages, and hospitality.
As always, you are encouraged to speak up and reach out if there are directions you would like to see the chapter taking. And if you are able to participate on a committee or in support of a planned event -- no matter how vast or limited your volunteer time -- that effort is appreciated. It is also part of your commitment to Les Dames d'Escoffier.
