First, let me be clear, I have no "chip on my shoulder" regarding my years in a professional kitchen, actually, quite opposite. I reflect on my time in the kitchen as character building years that transformed me into the wiser, creative and proud woman I am today. But, it's still fun to talk about the horrors of being a woman (and leader!) in the male dominated world of professional kitchens. Many truths here... but also just a great read!
