Austin Women in Culinary

February 20, 2019 7pm - February 20, 2019 10:30pm

The 2nd Austin Women in Culinary dinner will benefit Austin’s Les Dames d’Escoffier scholarship fund, which awards scholarships to women in food, fine beverage, and the hospitality industry. The dinner will celebrate female trailblazers in the culinary scene, with each participating chef creating a dish honoring a woman who has made a significant contribution to the world of food. There will be a reception in the historic Cedar Tavern with passed appetizers and specialty cocktails prepared by our guest bartenders. The Silent Auction will be held in the Eberly Study and will feature 2 more appetizers before a 4-course dinner is served in the main dining room. We look forward to hosting an amazing lineup of Austin Chefs paired with a perfectly curated cocktail and wine experience.
