When it comes to Dames who publish, The San Francisco chapter of Les Dames d’Escoffier is a prolific lot, having produced more best-selling, award-winning books about food and drink than the New York, Boston and Washington D.C. chapters combined.
We’re marking that distinction with our first-ever public signing event – called “A Literary Feast” — Sunday, November 13, from 3 to 6 pm at the Ferry Building mezzanine. The public will be invited to purchase a $10 ticket in advance via an on-line ticketing platform. Tickets will be $12 at the door. Cookbook fans will meet the authors, sample “bites” from cookbooks, and purchase signed, personalized books with local independent book store Book Passage handling the retail transactions. Purchasers will receive a commemorative bookmark with each purchase. Proceeds benefit the LDE-SF Culinary Scholarship fund, providing deserving female culinary students funding to enrich their education in the culinary world. A portion of the ticket sales will also benefit the very worthy www.gardenproject.org.

Why did the cupcake go to the doctor?
Because he was feeling crumb-y.
