Foodie's gadgets for sale for a cause


Julie Dannenbaum, the internationally known cookbook author, who owned and operated cooking schools in Philadelphia, Venice and at the Greenbrier resort in West Virginia, died suddenly in December at the age of 89.

Almost everything from the kitchens of her Delancey Street home will be sold April 15 at the Free Library to benefit the Philadelphia Chapter of Les Dames d'Esscoffier, which Dannenbaum help start.

Timed tickets to the sale will be made available online on March 15, said Kathy Gold, chapter president.

A cadre of "dames" recently went through Dannenbaum's drawers, counting more than 200 knives, scores of wisks, vegetable peelers, pie weights, pate molds, aspic molds, ice cream molds, chocolate molds and an eviable collection of copper pots. The tickets will be offered through EventBrite, and the price will be $25 plus the handling charge.

The limit will be 200 tickets, and the proceeds from the ticket sales will go to the Les Dames D'Escoffier Julie Dannenbaum Endowment Fund.
