Women Chefs: The Next Generation
Thirty years ago, chefs like Alice Waters and Lidia Bastianich—groundbreaking women who owned their own restaurants and won fame for it—were the exception. But no longer. Their efforts paved the way for some of our current favorite chefs: women like Melissa Perello (MP), Kelly Liken (KL), Naomi Pomeroy (NP), Allison Vines-Rushing (AVR), Alexandra Raij (AR), and Ashley Christensen (AC). Here, they talk with pioneering chef Evan Kleiman (EK), owner of L.A.’s Angeli Caffè, about what it means to be a woman chef today.
