Beverly Wettenstein's annual status report on women chefs and restaurateurs just published:
WOMEN CHEFS REAP JUST DESSERTS IN FOOD & WINE AND WHITE HOUSE"
Advocacy journalism works! She reports exciting news and milestones for women.
Wettenstein's advocacy, letters and annual reports for more than a decade -- along with leading, outspoken women chefs -- have made a difference. The proof is in the pudding. Dana Cowin, longtime Editor-In-Chief of Food & Wine, called to tell her F&W will dedicate the January 2015 issue to the women who rule the food world. Plus, she reports women made "first female" records this year at the James Beard Awards, the White House, magazine lists and Michelin guides.
Alas, the culinary career track to top toque for women is not a cakewalk. Networking and mentoring are keys to success. Women's professional culinary organizations, publications and events are recognized.
Warm wishes for a delicious new year filled with just desserts. Lets dish and Comment.
CALL TO ACTION FOR WOMEN LEADERS:
HOW TO SUPPORT WOMEN CHEFS AND RESTAURATEURS
Wettenstein is on a mission to urge women leaders and event planners to put your money where your mouth is and turn up the heat. Seek and support women chefs and restaurateurs when booking events and conferences. This is especially important for events honoring women and sponsored by women's organizations. She also recommends requesting and hiring female wait and bar staff, to support working women.
