A few weeks ago, I attended the Les Dames d’Escoffier International event in Dallas at Sixty Five Hundred. We heard about it through my boyfriend’s grandmother, who is a part of the community. It was a great time!
At the event, there were a bunch of tables lined up all around with food and alcohol samples. I think I only made it to about half of the tables, but everything was so good. There was also an auction at the end of the night, but we left as it started.
The Les Dames d’Escoffier International is a philanthropic organization made up of women leaders in food, fine beverage, and hospitality. Members are invite-only with over 2200 members. Some of the chapters include the US, Canada, Mexico, and the UK.
My boyfriend’s grandmother is a retired food-stylist. If I have my information correct, she is one of the Dallas Dames. I’ve learned a lot of what I know about food and etiquette from her.
I don’t know very much about the Les Dames, yet, but I plan to familiarize myself with them more. The next time they have an event here, I definitely want to attend. And the next time I talk to Grammie, I will ask her more about the Les Dames.
