Sweet and savory treats will be sold to benefit the LDEIKY scholarship fund
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (Nov.17, 2017) - - - Join the Kentucky chapter of Les Dames d’Escoffier (LDEIKY) for its third annual bake sale at Ramsi’s Café on the World, 1293 Bardstown Rd., Saturday, Dec. 2. From 1 to 5 p.m., or until sold out, a variety of festive treats will be available for purchase including homemade cookies, breads, cakes, cupcakes, muffins, scones, pies, and much more from local celebrated chefs, skilled bakers, and LDEIKY members. Shoppers can start their holiday shopping at the bake sale, and then join in the season’s festivities at Bardstown Road Aglow. Baked goods will be priced at $6 and up, and all proceeds will benefit LDEIKY’s scholarship fund. For more information, follow Les Dames Kentucky on Facebook.
The LDEIKY scholarship fund helps culinary students and Green Table, an initiative connecting urban and rural farms to schools and restaurants. Proceeds from last year’s bake sale funded two scholarships totaling $5,000 for two Sullivan University graduates. LDEIKY hopes to raise even more money for scholarships this year. In previous years, the baked treats sold out in the first few hours, so shoppers are encouraged to arrive early for the best selection.
Students from the National Center for Hospitality Studies at Sullivan University will collect and package all of the donated goods. The roster of donations includes local chefs, skilled home bakers and culinary celebrities from such restaurants as Brasserie Provence; Decca; 8UP; Anoosh Bistro; Cake Flour and The Bakery at Sullivan University. If you would like to provide treats for this sale, please email [email protected].
