Les Dames d’Escoffier is having their eighth salute to Women in Gastronomy. The symposium includes speakers, hands on cooking classes and a culinary expo, amongst other activities.

It will be called Mexican Cooking: Limitless Possibilities of the Avocado. It will run from 2:40 PM to 3:50 PM. I look forward to sharing recipes as well as my ways with this amazing fruit. I am thankful for the assistance of Judy Rusignuolo, First Vice President of Les Dames D.C.
