Top Chef, Chopped, you name it—we are in the golden age of the celebrity chef and the pressure has never been higher to break out in this cutting industry. High stress and grueling hours are enough to turn up the burner in any kitchen. But in recent years, the tolerance for macho celebrity chef showboating has boiled over. As more women rise up, a long-simmering cultural shift is demanded. Documentary filmmaker Maya Gallus brings the audience to the front lines of the food industry to meet the pioneers who have kicked through the glass ceiling. These apron-donning culinary craftswomen are taking the toxic industry by storm, and watch out. Because if you can’t stand the heat get out of the kitchen. IN PERSON: Director Maya Gallus.
