Skirt Steak: Women Chefs on Standing the Heat and Staying in the Kitchen by Charlotte Druckman

Author Charlotte Druckman interviewed over 70 female chefs
from around the United States for this book, and that is no small feat in itself. She has also done a great job of organizing those interviews into a cohesive narrative, teasing out frequently reiterated issues and concerns and actually offering a surprising yet realistic resolution (I, for one,  didn't see it coming) to the problem she addresses head on: what can be done to get and keep more women chefs in professional kitchens?


I'll leave her suggestion for you to find at the end of the book, but I think she is on the right track, widespread cultural change seems to reach the largest audience when the youngest members of society get on board first.  That is what it will take to bring about a world, or even a country, where both genders' contributions to professional life and family life are equally valued, whether or not they are chefs.
