If you can’t stand the heat

HR Monthly, September 2011

An article about perceptions changing in the kitchen, but awkward hours and a tough macho culture are still stopping women from getting to the top in professional kitchens.

Rhiannon Voros, head pastry chef at The Atlantic is quoted in the article:

The Atlantic – ocean to palate

Almost Always Ravenous, 10.09.2011
