Despite how sexist the cliché of “a woman’s place is in the kitchen” sounds, we need to keep women in the kitchen. It’s no shocker that the top rungs of the food industry have long been dominated by men. Even Times published the article “Gods of Food” in 2013 with not a single female in their list. But the status quo is teetering with female chefs and restauranteurs arising. There have, of course, been women trailblazers at the helms of kitchens for decades but today, the few have become the many.
A woman’s place is in the kitchen if she so decides it to be. International Women’s Day 2019 (IWD 2019) is coming up on 8 March and we’re celebrating the global campaign all through the year the best way we know how. This list recognises some of the heroines who are changing the food scene by stepping up to the plate. No matter where they came from or how high they have strived, one thing unites us with them: we love food. And when food doesn’t discriminate why should we? Drop by their eateries and prepare to be impressed.
