For too many years a woman's place was in the kitchen--except when that kitchen happened to have a restaurant attached to it. Though every woman was expected to be a good cook, conventional wisdom declared that only men could be great chefs. Fortunately, women haven't been paying attention to conventional wisdom, as Women of Taste makes abundantly clear. Here are the stories of 32 talented and courageous women chefs, told in their own words and accompanied by a sampling of their culinary wizardry. There is Andree Abranoff, for example, a woman who never took a formal cooking class in her life, yet presides over the highly respected New York eatery, Café Crocodile. And Gale Gand, whose family was crushed when she announced she wanted to become a chef, since they believed cooking was something you did "because you can't do anything else." Their attitude has changed since Gand's ascent to the top of her profession as a pastry chef.
In addition to biographies of these women and their own discussions of food, cooking, and their struggles to gain recognition in a male- dominated profession, Women of Taste includes mouthwatering photographs of the chefs' specialties, plus delectable recipes at the back. This book is proof that women chefs are baking their cake and having it, too!From the Publisher:
This glorious cookbook celebrates the achievement of women chefs with more than 175 of their most popular recipes. Plus 32 women chefs share how they made it in a man's world in fascinating 2-page profiles, accompanied by color photographs of each chef and her restaurant.
