An oversold group of Dames from the Colorado chapter along with their guests had the pleasure of meeting Madeleine de Jean and hearing her story at Sunday’s lunch and book signing at Dame Carol Maybach’s home. Madeleine de Jean was the first female sommelier and a close friend of Julia Child’s for many years, and she shared stories of her life in the wine industry, readings from her two books, and thoughts about her friendship with Julia. The classic French lunch featured salmon and pate appetizers paired with rose Champagne, followed by a nicoise salad, topped with both tuna and a gluten-free fried chicken. After lunch de Jean signed books for guests while everyone enjoyed cupcakes for dessert. For more pictures from the event, please click here.
