Unfortunately I wasn't able to hear the interviews but I am disturbed by the negative postings of some listeners. It seems there is a very macho atmosphere in some restaurant kitchens- harboring ill feelings and certainly spawning book contracts by publishers. It might be some sort of sensational, money, TV plot for recognition. Or it's maybe the Bush administration plot to make white American men more aggressive-- trickled into the kitchen. Whatever it may be, a kitchen certainly has a different feeling when a woman is in charge. And may I repeat- posted by another-- you go girl-- and fight them off !!

Was Julia Child a real chef? How do your guests think she effected our view of female chefs?
