Welcome to the Birmingham Chapter of
Les Dames d’Escoffier International
The Birmingham chapter of Les Dames d’Escoffier International (LDEI) is an organization of resident leaders and experts in the food and beverage industries, and we are dedicated to growing, creating, promoting and sharing our local food culture—and on an even more basic level, sharing food itself.
The newest chapter of LDEI, we founded our group in 2013 with 55 members—making it one of the largest initial memberships in the history of the organization! We are chefs, restaurateurs, sommeliers, caterers, farmers, food retailers, event planners, cookbook authors, food journalists and photographers, test-kitchen professionals, food stylists, winemakers and wine-industry professionals, food publicists, food-service professionals, culinary educators and hospitality executives.
Additionally, we promote the achievement and advancement of fellow culinary professionals through mentoring efforts. And we are steadfast and enthusiastic advocates for our local food community and seek always to celebrate its diversity and uniqueness and time-honored traditions.
UpcomingLook for us at the Pepper Place Market on Saturday, July 18th. Enter your favorite fresh tomato recipe.
