Taste of Paris 2016_Jessie Kanelos WEiner

This is what happens when all the male chefs are erased from this weekend’s Taste Of Paris Official event: 1 Woman.

In France alone, women represent almost half of the population of students enrolled in chef training: 48% are enrolled in the CAP cuisine, 52% are enrolled in BTS and 46% are enrolled in the Bac +3. As women continue to rise in presence in the hospitality industry, why is the presence of women limited to a token representative in food media and industry events? The social constraints that keep women out of kitchens is an uphill battle, but food media should adapt with the times in projecting something other than a perpetual boys club.
