What is a Dame?



Les Dames d’Escoffier is the only organization of its kind: a worldwide philanthropic society of professional women leaders in the fields of food, fine beverage and hospitality. The invitation-only membership, composed of 28 individual chapters across the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom, is highly diversified and reflects the multifaceted fields of contemporary gastronomy and hospitality.

Upon being granted the original charter by Les Amis d’Escoffier, the first chapter of Les Dames d’Escoffier was founded in New York in 1976. 

There are 1200 members worldwide representing chefs, culinary school proprietors and teachers, culinary historians, food editors and writers, hoteliers, vintners and wine merchants, restaurateurs, caterers, professors, chocolatiers, bakers, manufacturers and purveyors.
