Here's a cool new initiative that all #FOODWINEWOMEN should know about: COOKGIRL launched in January to promote and support women who are helping to make the gender bias in the kitchen evaporate. Starting with an initial list of 100 of the best chefs, restaurateurs, entrepreneurs and sommeliers in the country, CG set in place six initiatives to honor women in the culinary arts. A portion of these proceeds will go to the COOKGIRL Fund, which will provide grants to three outstanding females in the field in 2016.
Last night, COOKGIRL launched THE CHICAGO PROJECT with an event that featured top female chefs and food bloggers in the region. We asked the founders to report back about what moves this outstanding group. Here, the Windy City’s best talents share insight into some of their favorite foods.
