Director:
Maya Gallus

Premiere:
Hot Docs 2018

Select Festivals:
DOC NYC, Traverse City, San Sebastian, Hot Springs Doc, Edmonton

About:
A portrait of female chefs who have faced the boy’s club of the restaurant industry.

The film screened as part of DOC NYC, for which our program notes read:
A woman’s place is in the kitchen… or is it? Men still far outnumber women in the kitchens of restaurants worldwide. Director Maya Gallus profiles seven female chefs who have talent and passion, but have been subjected to shocking sexism as they fought for their careers. A no-holds-barred look into the kitchens of some top North American restaurants, her film exposes the often-toxic boys’ club pervasive in the restaurant industry as it answers the question: Can women chefs really take the heat?
