On September 23, 2018, Les Dames d’Escoffier Philadelphia hosted their 3rd Annual Heritage Farm Dinner at Bartram’s Garden, which recognizes women for their accomplishments in the food, beverage or hospitality industry.

This year, five women were honored with the Outstanding in Her Field award, including Claire Boasi, Susanna Foo, Aliza Green, Kathleen Mulhern and Judy Wicks. Proceeds from the dinner benefitted the LDEI Scholarship program.

The three course farm dinner will be meticulously put together by members and supporters of Les Dames who have been mentored or influenced by the night’s honorees. The group of chefs include Nick Elmi from Laurel and Lynn Buono from Feast Your Eyes. The menu will incorporate locally sourced ingredients, some from Bartram’s itself.
