The gastronomic goddesses of the Les Dames d’Escoffier (LDE) are holding a tag sale and raffle with plenty of culinary finds and collectible pieces. You’ll find handmade treats by LDE members for sale as well, both vintage and out-of-print cookbooks (for the Julia Childs in all of us), and silver service ware and linens.
You’ll also find more modern appliances such as pasta makers, Kitchen-Aids, and other small electrics. You can also score a vintage fondue set or a green enamel escargot set.
Throughout the day, the LDE ladies will hold a raffle featuring some local items and gift certificates. Guests will get the chance to win a gift certificate for one full week of classes at Janet Gaffney’s Cooking Camp (a $225 value) — which is good for one child — a dinner for two at Circa 1886, cooking classes with award-winning Nathalie Dupree, a Rooftop dinner for six, and much more. Complimentary coffee and handmade goodies are available as well.
