ON CON­QUER­ING THE FOOD SPACE AS A CHEF AND FIND­ING HER OWN NICHE IN A MALE-DOM­I­NATED IN­DUS­TRY Tip 1 En­joy your pro­fes­sion

This stands true for any in­dus­try. Once you start en­joy­ing your work, be it a man or woman, no­body in the world can stop you from get­ting to the top.

Tip 2 Be strong

Men­tally pre­pare your­self for long stren­u­ous hours and labour­in­ten­sive days in the kitchen.

Tip 3 Be pas­sion­ate about food

Speak food, breathe food, cre­ate food and eat food. Post some yummy pictures on so­cial me­dia to share the flavours with the world.

Tip 4 Be a team player

Cre­ate a team which re­spects you for not just be­ing a fe­male boss but a team player. Work to­gether and you will suc­ceed.

Tip 5 Stand tall and fight back

This is a male-dom­i­nated in­dus­try and it isn’t easy for a fe­male chef to get in or ad­just. You have to be a pro­fes­sional and work hard. In case you face ad­ver­si­ties, fight back and earn the right for your place and you will make a mark.
