Once it was said that a woman’s place is in the kitchen, but curiously, restaurant kitchens have been predominantly male-dominated. Is the cultural and culinary landscape changing? Has the #MeToo movement and the global pandemic created a shift, leading to the fading of the cult of the rock-star male chef in restaurants? Our award-winning female chefs will share their behind-the-pass stories.

Dulu ada yang pernah berkata, bahwa urusan perempuan itu hanya terbatas di dapur saja, namun anehnya, dapur-dapur restoran kita didominasi para lelaki. Apakah bentangan kebudayaan dan makanan telah berubah? Bagaimana gerakan #MeToo dan pandemi global telah mengubah skena kuliner kita, menyebabkan pudarnya kultus yang memuja chef restoran pria bagaikan rock-star? Para chef perempuan pemenang penghargaan kami akan menceritakan kisah-kisah di balik karier mereka.
