I just got home from a holiday party held at Loi Estiatorio for Les Dames d’Escoffier. Maria Loi the owner is a dame of long standing. I was nominated and accepted into the organization in 2014. I’m thrilled to be part of this group and enjoy promoting its mission. The beginning of the holiday season for me is usually the Diploma dinner at I Trulli held by the Wine & Spirits Education Trust and the International Wine Center. This year I could not attend so the holidays have started today with incredible Greek food.
