Dream-Job Tips from Top Chefs
Recipe for an inspiring conversation: Bring some of the biggest names in the restaurant world together onstage; add a microphone and a spirited, food-loving audience; stir the pot.
On Wednesday night, July 29, the Ace Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles was packed to capacity with a hungry audience (a show of hands confirmed that most had made a beeline straight from work) ready to hear the collected wisdom of some of the most revered, hardworking women in the food world at Women Without Reservations, a special event presented by Fidelity Investments.
Tasting Table's editor in chief Kat Kinsman hosted a spirited panel discussion with Border Grill and Mud Hen Tavern chef/owner Susan Feniger; Lucques, a.o.c., The Hungry Cat (and others) chef/owner Suzanne Goin; and Fundamental LA general manager and beverage director Alicia Kemper on topics ranging from creative inspiration and business frustrations to mentorship and gender issues in the restaurant industry. The takeaway: It's a deeply demanding business that can come at a personal cost and a roller-coaster ride of risk and reward—but looking back, none of them would have chosen a different path.
Because of these pioneering and fearless women, the future is brighter in the culinary field. Fidelity understands that planning for your future starts now, and they are here to help make sure that yours will shine.
