Quality Seafood Market owner, Carol Huntsberger was featured in Austin Culturemap promoting Les Dames d'Escoffier annual fundraiser. This year, it’s a casual party in the lot of Franklin Barbecue on Thursday, September 5, called You Grill, Girl, featuring Laura Sawicki of Launderette, Amanda Turner of Jester King, Abby Love of L’Oven Bread, and food writer Paula Disbrowe, among other local luminaries.

Huntsberger is a former president of the Austin Dames, and she worked hard in her tenure to expand the scope of the group’s giving. Traditionally supporting chefs, grants can now be given to non-Dames for professional development in everything from social media classes, sommelier certification, or trips abroad to study different cuisine.
