Les Dames d'Escoffier is the only organization of its kind: a world-wide philanthropic society of professional women leaders in the fields of food, fine beverage, and hospitality.

Some of our Dames own businesses, such as a restaurant, bakery, or catering service, that the public interacts with directly; please support them!  They are listed below. 
Other Dames are authors, professors, nutritionists, institutional caterers, and so forth, and their creative works are noted elsewhere on this website.  We hope you support all of them.

LDE-AA is a Member Club of the Ann Arbor City Club, centrally located within Ann Arbor with ample free parking and provision for valet parking, catering, and room rental for special events.
