More Gender Blending

More Gender Bending

I love that City Bites magazine devoted space in their October 18th issue to Toronto female chefs. Seeing our industry from diverse perspectives is important. I applaud the positive championing that Laura Pratt does in her piece “Gender blender” but, as a committed realist, I balked in spots at its we-have-arrived tone. Even the byline, “The girls are taking over the kitchen” expresses a faulty optimism (leaving the impression that gender parity in professional kitchens is not that far off).
