New Documentary Highlights Trailblazing Female Chefs
26 April, 2018
A new feature-length documentary highlights the work of the female chefs running some of the world's best kitchens.
The Heat: A Kitchen (R)evolution, directed by Maya Gallus focuses on seven female chefs – Anne-Sophie Pic, Amanda Cohen, Anita Lo, Angela Hartnett, Charlotte Langley, Suzanne Barr and Victoria Blamey – who are trailblazing and who have all had to push extra hard to rise to the top in what is still a very macho, male-dominated industry.
"The familiar macho posturing of celebrity chefs has reached a tipping point," says the blurb on the Red Queen Productions website. "Now with an influx of women at the helm of restaurants, and a younger generation unwilling to submit to the brutal conditions once considered the norm, the rules of 'kitchen culture' as we know it are being rewritten."
