17 Top Women Chefs Around LABy Lesley Balla | November 19, 2013 By Lesley Balla | November 19, 2013
With its recent article, "Gods of Food," Time magazine basically says there are no female chefs making an impact on the culinary scene right now, and it's created quite an uproar. There are so many amazing women chefs in LA, we had a hard time capping the list at 17. In all honesty, we could double, even triple that, especially if go we beyond the executive chefs, pastry chefs and chef-owners to include chefs de cuisine, sous chefs and line cooks who help run our city’s kitchens; the advocates for food policy; the farmer's market leaders and the farmers; and the authors, writers and other voices. So here you go, Time and anyone who thinks women aren’t integral to the culinary landscape right now: just a few goddesses of our food world, around LA and beyond.
