Attention Dames! Announcing our second Annual Call for applications for Hambidge Residency

Beginning in 2015, the Atlanta Chapter of Les Dames d’Escoffier established a Fellowship Grant to be awarded annually to a member of our chapter.

Dame Angie Mosier, the first recipient of our LDEI Hambidge Grant had this to say, “I just returned from my two week residency at the Hambidge Center and I was able to work on a project that is unfolding to be not only visually beautiful but socially intriguing and potentially important. We all work hard and our schedules are packed. It's sometimes difficult to imagine being able to take two weeks away but now that I've done it, I can't imagine not experiencing the beauty, serenity and focused energy that I was able to partake of there. The LDEI scholarship to Hambidge is a rare opportunity for our members to become part of the Hambidge fellowship. The Hambidge Center accepts artists of all disciplines from all over the world and they are eager to receive more culinary artists into their fold. I encourage you to think about those projects that you may have put on the back burner or consider an idea that you have had brewing for a while and apply for the LDEI Hambidge Scholarship. I'm truly grateful to the Atlanta Dames for the opportunity to energize and exercise my passion for creating compelling work that brings about conversation and consideration of the way we eat.”
