NYC Women in Food 2009: Green Goddesses began with a useful workshop from Karen Dalzell (left). President of DalzellGreen and a veteran of NYC event production, she shared her insight on eco-friendly production with top-shelf style.
NYC Women in Food (NYCWIF) is a green-friendly networking event celebrating all things female and food! Attendance is exclusive to members of Les Dames d’Escoffier NY, the NY Women’s Culinary Alliance and the NY Chapter of Women Chefs and Restaurateurs and their guests.
The beautiful 'Save the Date' and invitation announcements were created by Culinary Alliance board member, accomplished art director and author Ellen Swandiak. Click on the image to see more of her work.
