Les Dames d'Escoffier Atlanta Annual Dinner & A Movie Event

The Atlanta Chapter of Les Dames d'Escoffier International invites you to join us at our 2019 Annual Dinner & A Movie Event for a screening of A Fine Line.

A FINE LINE EXPLORES WHY LESS THAN 7% OF HEAD CHEFS AND RESTAURANT OWNERS ARE WOMEN, WHEN TRADITIONALLY WOMEN HAVE ALWAYS HELD THE CENTRAL ROLE IN THE KITCHEN.

Hearing perspectives and experiences from world-renowned chefs, including: World's Best Female Chef Dominique Crenn, Emmy Award Winning TV Host Lidia Bastianich, Two Michelin Star Chef April Bloomfield, One of Time Magazine's Most 

Influential People Barbara Lynch, First Female Iron Chef Cat Cora, World's Best Chef Daniel Humm and many more.

Meanwhile, getting to the heart of what is needed to empower women across all industries, by following the personal story of a small town restaurateur with a larger than life personality Valerie James. A single mother on a mission to do what she loves, while raising two kids and the odds stacked against her. An uplifting American success story about perseverance, family, and food.
A Fine Line grapples with themes sparking national conversations right now, including workplace harassment, equal pay, paid parental leave and career advancement.

Dame Cathy Conway of Avalon Catering has created a most delicious menu paired with the move. Check it out below.

Barbecue Nation: The History of Barbecue in America 

bbqnation.jpg

Please join us, Monday, October 1st, 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm, for a tour of the Atlanta History Center’s Newest Exhibit, Barbecue Nation

The exhibition explores how barbecue has come to claim an enduring place at the American table, and how it connects us to cultures around the world, in addition to traditions, history, and the future.  

The exhibition includes a wide array of artifacts, images, and oral histories from restaurants, festivals, community gatherings, and archives and museums from across the country.

Barbecue Nation includes historic photos and '50s and '60s advertising images (including an ad for the astonishing-in-retrospect Armour's Ribs in a Can), and features cookbooks, postcards, menus, place settings, and other artifacts from iconic barbecue joints. 

Vintage grills demonstrate the evolution of backyard cooking from trench to brick pit to mobile cooker. Among them: a 1948 Char-Broil Wheelbarrow Picnic Cooker, a 1965 Weber kettle, and a Japanese kamado brought home by a U.S. serviceman in the 1970s (Big Green Egg cites “ancient cookers” from China and Japan in this style as a design inspiration). Also on view is President Dwight D. Eisenhower's GE PartioCart, a high-end, dual-fuel cooker trimmed in turquoise that he fired up at his retirement home in Palm Springs, California. A more contemporary eye-catcher is the 13-foot-long “Space Shuttle BBQ Pit” created by Houston-based Gator Pit of Texas.

Ticket also include food provided by Jim ‘N Nick’s Bar-B-Q and (2) two drink tickets to the cash bar.

Dames Who Play in the Kitchen for a Cause!

This is a DAMES only experience curated by Dames for Dames. Join Co-Hosts Stacy Zeigler, Amy Crowell, and Judith Winfrey for Dames Who Play in the Kitchen on Sunday, May 6 at 5 pm. This event will be a Giving Kitchen Supper Club event.

The Giving Kitchen (GK), a nonprofit providing emergency assistance to restaurant workers through financial support and a network of community resources, is celebrating its fifth anniversary this May with a new signature event: the GK Supper Club. Before Atlanta Chef Ryan Hidinger was diagnosed with stage-four cancer, he and his wife Jen hosted Prelude to Staplehouse supper clubs in their home as a precursor to opening their dream restaurant, Staplehouse.. After his diagnosis, the purpose behind opening Staplehouse became bigger than they had imagined, and the Giving Kitchen was born. In what is nearly five years, because of Ryan's vision, GK has helped over 1,000 restaurant workers in crisis with over $1.6 million. GK wants to honor Ryan's vision for the Giving Kitchen for its fifth anniversary by taking our supporters back to the beginning with the GK Supper Club, inspired by Prelude to Staplehouse.

Come join LDEI Atlanta in celebrating Ryan, Giving Kitchen and the fellowship of Dames for our GK Supper Club at the home of Stacy Zeigler. Make your favorite pot luck dish, bring a Peach Dish Kit inspired by Prelude to Supper Club or feel free to let one of Ryan’s Prelude to Supper Club dishes (Check out their amazing menus and photos at Prelude to Staplehouse) be your inspiration.

Please consider bringing a DONATION for the Giving Kitchen that night or donate online

It is a One-acre garden managed collectively by 7 farm families. The first farm project of Global Growers that inspired many others to follow suit.

Global Growers is the only organization in Georgia that connects the agricultural talent of the local refugee community to opportunities in sustainable agriculture. Global Growers specializes in providing comprehensive agricultural support including: farmland acquisition and management, aggregation and distribution services which facilitates market access and sales for partner farmers, as well as education and technical assistance in organic fruit and vegetable production. Global Growers is an independent 501c3 nonprofit organization based in Atlanta, GA.

We will tour the farm and garden between 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm. Immediately following the tour we will hear from Global Growers leadership team and continue networking while enjoying food grown and made by the refugees involved with Global Growers. As our event is being held outdoors on a farm, please wear appropriate attire and shoes. This is a rain or shine event.
