... My proudest moment as President of Les Dames d'Escoffier DC chapter was:
The greatest career challenge I've ever had was: running out of turkey on Thanksgiving before dinner service was over! Did I say the restaurant was 10 miles from the nearest grocery store? Can’t believe I’m here to tell the tale.
If I had to choose a different career it would be an environmental advocate
Best changes over the years in the DC Food scene are:
We now have a plethora of great restaurants. When I was first married my in-laws lived here. When we would come to visit they strained to come up with fun places to take us for dinner.
My favorite cookbook is:
I have a lot. Favorite French- Madeline Kamman, Making of a Cook; Indian- Julie Sahni Classic Indian, Japanese- Shozuo Tsuji, Japanese Cooking A Simple Art (really I could go on and on….)
If I had a last meal, it would be:Kaiseki Dinner
I'd say the future of Les Dames d'Escoffier is: Wide Open! The more we all put in, the more we, and the world around us, gets out!!!
