Gender in the Kitchen

I am taking a break from travel posting to link you to a great article. My inner feminist couldn't resist the topic. "Why Are There No Great Women Chefs?" was featured in the winter 2010 edition of Gasronomica Journal. Thanks to my friend Amy, who is luck enough to be taking a great class on the sociology of food,  for passing it along! In the article, the author talks about the gender gap in the growing world of celebrity chefs and the culture of gender in the professional kitchen.This is a highly recommended read. The author also references many great articles in the end including this one from the New York Times.
