The Racquet Club located in the Gold Coast Historic District with its wood paneled walls and timeless elegance was the setting for the 31st Les Dames d’Escoffier Annual Meeting and Dinner. Happy voices greeting new and old friends, accompanied delicious hors d’oeuves and wine in the club’s handsome foyer.
The business meeting followed led by President Jennifer Lamplough. Jennifer reviewed the year, introduced Linda Avery who gave the Treasurer’s Report, introduced JeanMarie Brownson, Nominating Chair, who presented the new board and Catherine Koelling, new member committee member, who introduced our eleven stellar new dame members.
A three-course dinner comprised of a pan seared scallop with quail egg, asparagus tips and chive oil appetizer, a lamb chop entrée with roasted carrot risottoand a rhubarb basil tart with vanilla bean ice cream for dessert partnered with good wine and sparkling conversation, made for a most joyous evening. Attendance of 75 members was at an all-time high. A big thank you to program chair, Shannon Kinsella and Melissa Lehman, dame member and Racquet Club catering director! As President Jennifer Lamplough said in her inspiring toast, “We are awesome!”
