Female Chefs Get Their Own Accolades

Should Female Chefs Have Exclusive Accolades?

For female chefs, the kitchen still feels like a man's world, but recently, a number of gender-centric events and accolades have been filling the food circuit, attempting to remedy the solution.

San Pellegrino announced its short list for its first-ever Best Female Chef award, and much of Manhattan's top talent has signed on to participate in a female chef dinner series, designed to "showcase and celebrate the talented women in the hospitality industry."

It's great to see women getting wider acknowledgment for their contributions to the restaurant industry, but I can't help but wonder if singling them out will only emphasize the divide between male and female chefs. Are female-specific industry acknowledgments helping to further women in whites — or simply perpetuating the differences between guys and gals in the kitchen?

I would rather be "best chef" than "best female chef", but I also would take any and all awards ;)
