Hosted by Radio 4’s Sheila Dillon, in discussion with the chefs and food writers championing and changing the role of women in the kitchen, the panel will be exploring the historical role of women working as cooks in private homes, the influence of great female food writers in changing the way the nation eats, investigating the recent role of women as international culinary superstars, and hearing from the female chefs changing what it means to run a restaurant kitchen.

Sybil will be joined by food writer, cook and founder of Zoe’s Ghana Kitchen – Zoe Adjonyoh, British Indian chef, Romy Gill and Sudi Pigott, food writer, editor, and co-founder of Women of Food.
