President's Welcome

Les Dames d’Escoffier South Florida was founded in February 2017. Our first three years were filled with great successes. 


In our first year, we raised enough money to present a scholarship to Marie Franks, which Marie used to pay her tuition in her final year at FAU in Boca Raton, FL. We have also provided partial funding to send a delegate to every LDEI Annual Conference since our founding, and in 2020 we partially funded two delegates’ attendance at the LDEI Conference in Nashville, TN. We were also $500 Conference Patrons. 


We are moving forward into 2024 with a great legacy and great promise. As one of the youngest and most active chapters in the LDEI organization, we are recognized as a chapter “that is doing great things.” We are planning to present another scholarship in 2024. Through our involvement in LDEI’s Global Culinary Initiative, we’ll continue learning about the culinary cultures of other countries. We’ve had several educational Zoom events featuring food, wine and champagne in locations such as Brittany, Lyon, Provence, Paris, Tuscany, Greece, and the British countryside
