I loved reading this article earlier this week about how several women were recognized at the 2011 James Beard Foundation Awards. I think it’s vital that we promote the great work that women are doing across our profession and I work to do so at Delaware North Companies. There is no denying that being a chef takes great dedication, skill and hard work. And anyone who can deliver that and succeed deserves to be recognized and appreciated for their efforts.
If you read the article you’ll learn that women won five categories at the highly-respected James Beard event, including best New York City Chef.
Women made their mark on the male dominated restaurant industry at the glitzy 2011 James Beard Foundation Awards, winning at least five categories, including best New York City chef which went to Gabrielle Hamilton who is the chef and owner of Prune. Congratulations to all the winners.
Here are a few previous blog posts that focus on the efforts of women at Delaware North.
