Everything but the Kitchen Sink: Les Dames d’Escoffier Gourmet Garage Sale

Some of what I'm offering a la carte thanks to Chef.

To unearth buried treasure, look in the right places.

A trove of high quality kitchen goods sourced and curated by women who know food for a living will be ripe for the picking at the annual Les Dames d’Escoffier Gourmet Garage Sale on Saturday, January 29, 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.

As a new member of the Miami chapter, I’m excited to participate for the first time.  My donation will be dish and glassware which in their past lives served as props for chef Michael Schwartz’s cookbook shoot last year.

Proceeds support our various fundraising efforts to foster regional agriculture, sponsoring organic school vegetable gardens, better nutrition and cooking education for area youth and our region’s farm labor force, as well as annual culinary and farming scholarships for exceptional young South Florida women.

More details, including the address to type into your Google Maps app, after the jump.  See you out there.
