Dame It! returns as the “best time ever” fundraiser!

The Minnesota Chapter of Les Dames d’Escoffier is throwing a spotlight on Minnesota’s women chefs. Some of the Twin Cities’ most creative kitchens are led by women chefs. The taste-around lets you mingle and chat with the chefs as you sample a delicious array of small plates, wine tastings, craft cocktails/mocktails and sweets.

Back by popular demand!!

Take a mini wine class at Dame It! 2020 with Vine Lab Wine & Spirits Academy founders, (Dame) Nikki Erpelding & Lisa Lehar. Featuring 3 European countries; Spain, Italy and France. Sampling 3 wines per class.
