If you were to ask our current students how many of them are interested in the ‘foodie’ culture or watch cooking shows on television, the number of young women who would raise their hands could astound you. With the rise of the culinary explosion has come an influx of new cooking shows, an obsession over novel foods, and the omnipresent multitude of books, magazines and blogs dedicated solely to the art of cooking. All of this adds up to a true revolution in the cultural pursuit and love of cooking, and not only for the adult generation. Gone are the days where all-girls schools require courses in “Home Economics;” where students are taught how to cook their first dinner, how to entertain, how to make a soufflé or a perfect canapé. What has morphed, however, is the drive and opportunity for young women to enter careers where they become entrepreneurs, restaurateurs, chefs, and food industry magnets.
