Description: One of the oldest -- and most paradoxical -- of conventional beliefs is that while every woman should be a good cook, only a man can be a great chef Thanks, in great part, to the women profiled in this book, that once-thriving notion is on its way to becoming as extinct as the dinosaur. While they are still outnumbered by men, women chefs have, in just the past 20 years, established themselves as the creative talents behind some of the best kitchens in the world and have won more prestigious culinary awards than anyone would have dreamed possible just a generation ago.
In Women of Taste, you'll meet 32 of these talented and courageous women and find out how they made it in a man's world. Internationally renowned chefs such as Susan Weaver, Debra Ponzek, Rozanne Gold, Sarabeth Levine, and Susanna Foo share their war stories and in their own words relate how, against all odds, they rose to the top of their professions.
You also get to sample some of their culinary magic. In addition to providing fascinating illustrated profiles of these culinary geniuses, Woman of Taste features over 175 recipes presented in menu form by each chef As diverse and original as their creators, the dishes described range from the unexpected --Diane Forley's Creme Brul6e Infused with Verbena Leaves and Patricia Williams's Corn Crepes with Ossetra Caviar -- to the familiar -- Josefina Howard's Guacamole, and Molly Siple's Red Bliss Potato Salad.
Celebrating the achievements of 32 pioneering women who have turned the culinary world on its head, Women of Taste is a source of both inspiration and gustatory delights.
