From chefs and sous chefs to sommelières and activists, discover how innovative women working in the food world are using gastronomy to change perceptions of the role of women in society.
Join us for a special screening of Vérane Frédiani’s documentary, The Goddesses of Food (A la recherche des femmes chefs), which includes interviews with women from across the world who are pioneers in haute gastronomy, restaurants, and wine and food professions.
The film, which will be screened in French with English subtitles, is presented in collaboration with Ciné Lumière, part of the Institut français du Royaume-Uni in London. The Festival also includes a film screening of Carole Roussopoulos, Une Femme à la Caméra on Tuesday 11 June.
