Great Women Chefs of Europe

Celebrating Sexual Equality in the Continent's Kitchens
by Gilles Pudlowski

Great Women Chefs of Europe

Women do most of the cooking around the world, yet the most-highly-regarded and talked-about chefs are almost all men. It's high time we celebrate our women chefs.

Have you heard of Annie Feolde from Florence, the first woman to get three stars for her restaurant in Italy? Or Angela Hartnett who cooks at London’s exclusive The Connaught hotel, and who had the guts to do away with her predecessor's (Michel Bourdin) Escoffier-style fare? And then there's Léa Linster, from Frisange in Luxembourg, who beat many male contestants in being awarded the Bocuse d’Or prize.

"Great Women Chefs" is as much an homage to Europe’s 35 top culinary mères as it is a coffee table-style road map for good eats, inviting readers to taste Linster’s truffle soup or to make a mental note to order Fatema Hal’s bestella on their next Paris trip
