  • View this post on Instagram A post shared by Her Name Is Chef (@hernameischef) Looking for a riveting title to add to the queue" Her Name Is Chef is a new feature documentary that takes a much-needed deep dive into the restaurant industry and the (far too few) women in it.
  • This thought-provoking film highlights six women who are fighting for equality in the mostly male-dominated industry.
  • Built around the story of Pakistani American executive chef Fatima Ali, who died in 2019 from a rare form of cancer, this documentary explores how women are seen in the food-based profession and what it takes for them to achieve their success.
  • "Why do I have to be labeled as a female chef"" Esther Choi asks in the film's trailer.
  • In the film, host Leia Gaccione sits down with Esther, Elizabeth Falkner, Fatima, Hillary Sterling, Juliet Masters, and Caroline Schiff to uncover what it means to be a woman in the restaurant business, the ups and downs of each one's career path, and, ultimately, the importance of supporting women in every step of their lives.
