Les Dames d’Escoffier Atlanta’s Annual Fall Culinary Event Supports Life-Changing
Scholarship Programs and Educational Grants
Sunday, November 3 at 1 pm
Les Dames d’Escoffier (LDEI) Atlanta, part of an international society of female leaders in culinary professions, is hosting the 19th annual Afternoon in the Country (AITC) on Sunday, Nov. 3 from 1-4 p.m. at Foxhall Resort in Douglasville, Georgia. Tickets for both general and VIP admission are now available, and proceeds from the event directly fund scholarships for women in culinary and agriculture, as well as support other food-related philanthropic efforts.
“Afternoon in the Country isn’t just a fun way to enjoy amazing food and beverages, it’s also an opportunity to meet the incredible women making an impact in our community and to help us continue education for females pursuing careers in culinary arts, hospitality and agriculture,” said Angie Mosier, Les Dames d’Escoffier-Atlanta board president.
Dedicated to promoting the achievement of women in culinary professions through educational and charitable activities, the Atlanta Chapter of LDEI has been offering annual scholarships and continuing education grants since 2001. The organization also provides thousands of dollars of funding to local non-profit organizations related to farming, global culinary initiatives, nutrition programs and anti-hunger work. AITC’s ticket sales, raffle and auction items help fund these initiatives.
While supporting these important causes, AITC attendees get to spend an afternoon sampling food and beverages from more than 150 of the region’s top chefs, restaurants, farms, wineries, breweries and distilleries. The afternoon also includes a cake raffle featuring delectable creations from Atlanta’s most talented pastry chefs and a celebrated silent auction offering exciting getaways and food and wine merchandise.
General admission tickets to AITC are $125 per person and include unlimited tastings. For $250, the VIP ticket experience includes special perks such as early admission, valet parking, a gift tote with an array of curated goods, and access to the Georgia Grown VIP Tent and the Foxhall Resort After Party at the glorious Legacy Lookout. Both tiers of tickets are available
for purchase online.
