Philadelphia has a storied culinary history, and professional women have been integral to the development of restaurants, catering companies, farms and food production since the city was founded.
In order to honor this heritage, Les Dames d’Escoffier Philadelphia developed Outstanding In Her Field in 2016 to recognize a Philadelphia-area woman for her accomplishments in the food, beverage or hospitality industry.
“We are thrilled to return to Inn at Grace Winery for our 2nd Annual Outstanding in Her Field Farm Dinner,” said Les Dames d’Escoffier Philadelphia Event Co-Chair and President Natanya DiBona. “Our annual dinner an incredible event that brings together chefs, producers and foodies alike in a beautiful setting among the vines of this famous vineyard. It celebrates the accomplishments of a pioneering woman in food, like Ann Karlen, while raising scholarship money to support the next generation of women in food.”
