I am very much into women who are doing their own thing in food. I like to see ladies write their own rules (if any at all). And I’m excited (and proud) when a woman in food makes her dreams real.
It’s hard to make food dreams real. There aren’t a lot of guidebooks to how to make money in the food industry. There are many antiquated models, some of them just don’t work anymore. The new ways come from women who have made it and I’m interviewing three such women next week.
On Monday, October 1, Leigh Belanger (my co-founder of The Fresh Collective) and I will moderate a panel with James Beard Award-Winning chef and cookbook author Akunowicz; cookbook author and New York Times contributor Colu Henry, and America’s Test Kitchen cast member and food stylist Elle Simone Scott.
If you work as a chef or in a grocery store, if you photograph food or develop recipes, if you’re finding your own way to blaze a trail, then I believe this panel is made expressly for you.
There are a few remaining tickets for this event and we’d love for you to grab one (or two!) Each ticket comes with either a craft beer or glass of natural wine–a cash bar follows. And several great Boston-area food makers will share their delicious food with you. Get tickets and complete info and freshcollectiveconvo.eventbrite.com.
The panel will be hosted at Alley Powered by Verizon in Cambridge, Massachusetts from 6:30-9:30pm.
I look forward to seeing you there!
