A variety of events are offered by Les Dames d’Escoffier Chicago during the year, with many events open to the public. Check out events below for what’s coming up. For more information, email


Please join us for an afternoon reception with Dame Dorie Greenspan, who will be in Chicago for her new book, Everyday Dorie, which comes out Oct. 23!  Dorie is eager to connect with the Chicago Dames! We will share some bubbly and a variety of nibbles from Dorie’s cookbooks, including her newest.
As this event is sandwiched between two other public events in her packed schedule, we respectfully request that you not bring books to be signed, as we just want to celebrate Dorie and not make her work!

DATE & TIME: Thursday Nov. 1, 3-5 p.m.
LOCATION: The home of Dame Stacey Ballis, 2819 W Logan Blvd.
Limited handicapped parking available; please contact Stacey to reserve one of the available spots if you need it.
PRICE:$20 per person. Purchase tickets here.

PLEASE NOTE: This is a private reception for members only. If you have friends or potential new members who wish to see Dorie while she is in town, please take them to one of her others events.  She will be at Read It and Eat with Dame Ina Pinkney on Thursday Nov 1. Get tickets here. Dorie also will be at Dame Patty Erd’s The Spice House on Friday Nov 2. Tickets for that are here.
