Quote of the Day: Jacques Pepin on Gender Roles in the Kitchen

Image vai KQED

"I think it doesn’t really make any sense. That point is that — I mean certainly for me, somehow, especially in America — people tend to think of their French chefs as male. There are nine restaurants in my family that I can think of, my mother owns two. I’m the first male going into that business. We have nine female: cousins, aunts, sister-in-law, and so forth, who own restaurants. So you know this is a total misconception."

-Jacques Pepin in a recent interview about whether grilling is a masculine activity. [The Braiser]
