Women Leaders in
Food, Fine Beverage & Hospitality


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.

Letter From Our President

Dear Dames,

I’m writing to ask you to join us at the 5th Annual The Next Big Bite on October 15th. With this event we showcase our leadership and expertise in the culinary world. Through ticket sales and sponsorship, we also raise a significant amount of money for scholarship. In order to have a successful evening, we need your support.



On July 17th, Les Dames d’Escoffier’s New York Chapter granted scholarships to seventeen future female industry leaders attending nine culinary and wine schools. The event was held at NYU’s Rosenthal Pavilion overlooking Washington Square Park. Among the scholarships were a newly established one honoring LDE founder Grande Dame Carol Brock, and one in memory of Dame Aileen Robbins. Carol was sufficiently recovered from a recent illness to attend and movingly addressed the audience. Aileen’s daughter was also present. As each recipient was recognized, a 15-second video describing her career aspirations was shown, adding a wonderful audio-visual element to the proceedings. read more
