Take It From the Dames ~ This is a Cookbook You Must Have ~ Recipes from Top Women in the Food & Wine World

Today is the day!

It’s the launch of Stirring the Pot, the first-ever cookbook created by Les Dames d’Escoffier. Can you believe that?!

The book will go on sale, September 18 – and will entirely benefit the LDNY scholarship fund.

Les Dames d’ Escoffier New York, the most influential and accomplished women in the food and wine world, present their favorite recipes for everything from simple weekday meals to spectacular party dishes.




Both Dame Silvia Baldini and Dame Sharon Franke created Stirring the Pot with this extraordinary group of talented women. The book has blossomed into a remarkable culinary journey.

Be sure to get your copy today. 
Authors Silvia Baldini and Sharon Franke showcase seventy-six family recipes and pairings by Pascaline Lepeltier, MOF, and including a dedication by Lidia Bastianich to LDNY founder Carol Brock and a foreword by Carla Hall.

From Lidia’s “Cavatappi with Asparagus and Spinach Pesto” or Ellie Krieger’s recipe “Family Favorite Minestrone,” to a stunning “Radicchio Salad with Radish, Basil, and Roasted Garlic Vinaigrette” by two-Michelin star Chef Melissa Rodriguez, these recipes are for every occasion and for every level of skill.

Discover the dishes and recipes that some of the most heralded women in the food business, in the greatest city in the world for food, cook when they are in their own home kitchens.


I am so very honored to be a Dame!
