This year the annual event was presented by Thermador & Capital Distributing and took on a bit of a French theme, decorating the outdoor space to resemble the outdoor countryside of Provence with buckets of wild lavender & woody herbs resembling the wild herbs of the region under a canopy of bistro lights and twinkling crystal chandeliers.
Les Dames d’Escoffier International is the only organization of its kind, an invitation only membership of outstanding women who have reached a level of distinction in the fields of culinary, fine beverage and hospitality.
Through events, like the annual Raiser Grazer, these women raise funds to help other women throughout the city & state extend their education in these fields through grants, endowments and scholarships, helping change not only her life but the lives of her entire community.
I am proud to be a member of the Dallas Chapter and the work we do. Other Dallas Dames include Chef Janice Provost / Pairgi, Sommelier Courtney Luscher / The Grape, Chef Jill Bates / Fearing’s, Chef Dunia Borga / La Duni, Chef Joanne Bondy / Stocks & Bondy, Chef Sharon Hage, and D Magazine Best Bartender Leann Berry / Komali.
Photos from the night were captured by Dame Lisa Stewart / Lisa Stewart Photography and these included in the post from our dear friend, Frankey Dey.
Thanks to all who joined the Dames for a beautiful evening doing good for others. More information about LDE-DALLAS on the website.
