On April 4, Chicago Dames gathered over oysters and champagne to discuss Ashley Warlick’s The Arrangement, an historical fiction about the legendary food writer M.F.K. Fisher.
January 29 – The Dames’ recent Sunday jaunt to North Shore Distillery in Green Oaks was both informative and tasty — the best kind of program! Owner Sonja Kassebaum graciously welcomed us to their new facility, which had previously housed a kitchen design space and warehouse, with coffee and pastries from a local bakery.
Nearly 20 Dames and prospective members came together for the annual LDE Chicago Holiday Brunch, held this year at Dame Sarah Stegner’s Prairie Grass Café in Northbrook.
The Chicago chapter was well represented–in both enthusiasm and numbers– at the recent Les Dames d’Escoffier International annual conference in Washington D.C.
Les Dames d’Escoffier International is a worldwide society dedicated to fostering the advancement of women in culinary professions through educational and charitable activities.
