It is no doubt that there are actually tons of industries out there wherein male dominance cannot be denied. However, this doesn’t necessarily mean that women are actually being left behind.
When it comes to restaurants and cooking, some of the greatest chefs in the world today are actually known to be men. Just like world-renowned chefs, Wolfgang Puck and Gordon Ramsey. Then again, what most people don’t realize is that there actually a lot of women in the cooking industry that are considered to be one of the greats as well.
For such a long time now, men has always been in favor when leading the kitchen, but even the best male chefs in the entire world would never say that they cook better than their own mothers, who are obviously female. For some, when it comes to home cooking, the women lead the game, but in the professional world, it is the men.
Technically it doesn’t need to be that way, especially in this innovative world since that kind of thinking may actually get you in trouble. Equality must be respected and must be practiced anywhere, whatever industry it may be.
World’s Best Female Chefs
There are a lot of world-renowned chefs in the world, but most of them are actually men and only a few know some women. World’s 50 Best Restaurants recently declared the best female chef in the entire world, in the person of Chef Clare Smyth. The Northern Irish chef was the one behind the catering of the wedding of His Royal Highness Prince Harry of Wales and his television actress Meghan Markle earlier this year.
Chef Smyth was given this award at the World’s 50 Best Restaurants gala that was held in Spain. She believes that there is still a big lack of women in the industry. This was actually a fact since her own restaurant has been overlooked.
The best female chef in the world also said that this is something that people can’t just continue ignoring. Make and female chefs must not separate and must be treated fairly at all times, which is why more women like her must come up the top to make it fair since it is clearly a male-dominated industry.
She revealed that it was at one of Gordon Ramsey’s restaurant where she became the first and the only female chef to run a three Michelin star restaurant. In fact, there are only seven in history to do be able to do so. Last year, she managed to open her own and in just a matter of a year, it became GQ’s Food and Drinks best restaurant.
Industry Dominated By Men
Some women tend to feel a little scared and intimidated when they think of getting into companies that are dominated by men, which is why some of the most successful women believe that there are actually keys into breaking into it. One of them is by having the confidence, in such a competitive world, having the confidence to go along with your amazing skills and talent would get you anywhere, whether it is dominated by men or not. It is something that no one could take away from you, some people may push you down a little but that confidence must be locked into place, that way you will definitely earn people’s respect, especially in the kitchen.
They say that talent can be replaceable because whatever you do, there will always be someone who can replace you by doing the job you can also do. Another thing to keep in mind is to make a trademark so that no one would actually have the nerve to try and do better than what you do, one of the secrets when it comes to that is by simply being yourself and let your talents do the talking. Prove how capable you are for doing something remarkable that they would remember you.

Most people think that not everything men can do can actually be done by women, then again, most people forget that it actually works both ways. It is not exactly a competition between men and women, it should be equality.
If you know you can do better then go for it, show them that you are there not because you want to beat the men but to simply become the best version of yourself. Know your weaknesses and work on them, know your strengths and improve them.
