Old Steve (Greek landlord) handed me my mail today, drawing my attention to a lumpy, hand-scrawled envelope with no return address and a Massachusetts postmark. “I’m not sure if it’s okay.”
No anthrax inside, it was simply a photocopy of the article, “Why Are There No Woman Chefs?” without a note or any explanation. It’s a great article about gender bias in the food world, but I feel mildly stung. The anonymity of the sender seems to imply an obtuse critique towards me. Or perhaps I am defensive because I have fears that my rapid success at Edible Queens is somehow gender-based.
Either way, it’s a good read. Check it out here.
