As we prepare for one of the largest wine events in the Southwest, Savor Dallas which starts this Friday, we noticed that there are a few ancillary events that are new this year and help out a variety of food and wine related charities. Specifically there is a Les Dames d’Escoffier luncheon Saturday, March 31st.
I realize that the very name Les Dames d’Escoffier might be alien to some readers, but the international organization is remarkable. It is made up of food and wine industry women that are noted in their field who make a difference for young women by means of scholarships.
Auguste Escoffier is of course the chef and writer who brought us the modern French Cuisine and is studied by every chef worldwide.
The luncheon Saturday will be held at the Milestone Culinary Art Center in Dallas starting at 11:30am. Tickets are $99 but also includes a copy of their cookbook “Cooking with Les Dames d’Escoffier”. Go directly to their website for more information and to purchase tickets for this fun event.
There will be plenty more information this week on other Savor events. If you wish to purchase tickets for any of those events go here.
