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.
