If you ate it, drank it, or read it recently, chances are very good that one of our members was involved!


The Seattle Chapter of Les Dames d'Escoffier was chartered in 1989 and today consists of 65 members including chefs, winemakers, growers, cookbook authors, caterers, restaurateurs, chocolatiers, food photographers, dieticians, and consultants. 

What have we been up to: 

Early 2024 we visited Dame Jamie Hunt's Fast Penny Spirits for a tour and Amaro tasting! This first quarter Jamie is generously donating 3% of Amaro Bottle Sales to Les Dames Seattle through Fast Penny's Pretty Penny Giving Back Program.
