Charleston Chapter of Les Dames D'Escoffier Lunch at 181 Palmer

181 Palmer was proud to host a luncheon for the Charleston Chapter of Les Dames D'Escoffier. The following is the report written for the organization's national magazine by LDEI Second Vice President Susan Slack."Charleston Dames and their guests gathered for an elegant April luncheon at 181 Palmer, the dining room at the Culinary Institute of Charleston. Culinary Program Specialist Marion Sullivan and Hospitality Department Head Patricia Agnew hosted the special event with the help of CIC's culinary team. Arriving guests were greeted with exquisite hors d'oeuvres and flutes of champagne. A choice of three seasonal courses followed, expertly cooked and served by well-trained culinary students under the direction of Chef Instructor Scott Stefanelli and Hospitality Instructor Lisa Buzzelli. A large screen video monitor, strategically placed on one wall, allowed diners a behind the scenes look at the kitchen action. The students earned top marks and high praise for their efforts. Guests included CIC student Elizabeth Freer and Art Institute student Junni Lai, both recent recipients of a $1,000 culinary scholarship from the Charleston Chapter."
