March 8th is the International Women’s Day , a date that symbolizes a series of achievements in terms of women’s rights, especially in the labor field. As in other areas, in the kitchen it is a daily battle for female chefs to conquer their space. This is contradictory, since women have historically played the leading role in domestic kitchens, but when it comes to award-winning and recognized restaurants, the number of male chefs is even greater.
Thus, with the aim of bringing the women’s protagonism for their restaurants, chefs who with a lot of sweat, determination and competence have conquered a prominent place on the world gastronomic scene, prepare a special program to honor the struggle of women – in kitchens and in all areas.
Check out some of the celebrations below:
