The Female Chef
By Clare Finney (With)
2021 • Hoxton Mini Press
A glance at the current list of British Michelin-starred chefs will tell you the food scene’s historic gender imbalance is far from solved. Women, though traditionally encouraged to cook at home, have long been much less championed in professional kitchens. And yet, within this challenging environment, many women are pioneering change – from nurturing all-female teams to shaking up the narrative of what it means to be a woman and a chef. This book celebrates those at the forefront of modern food, and the experiences that got them there, bringing together insightful interviews, original portraits and each chef’s most memorable recipe.
