A FIne Line: A Woman's Place is in the Kitchen

We were so honored to host a special screening of award-winning documentary film A Fine Line. The film explores the challenges women in food face, highlighting the personal journey of small town restaurateur Valerie James. You also hear from big names in the industry like Dominique Crenn, Lidia Bastianich, and Cat Cora. We were also excited to have filmmaker Joanna James with us to talk about this important project. Some of our favorite women chefs provided small bites with the wine reception. Our panel of local chefs and restaurateurs talked about making the hospitality industry more diverse and supportive of women.

Special thanks to chefs: Bonnie Morales, Sarah Schneider, Sara Woods, Althea Grey Potter, Isabelle Kitchen, Johanna Ware, Sarah Marshall, Naoko Tamura, Fatou Ouattara, Jennifer Pereau & Nong Poonsukwattana. And special shout out to panelists: Katy Millard, Joanna James, Michelle Battista, Ksenija Kostic House, Naoko Tamura & Fatou Ouattara
