The Goddesses of Food

We’re thrilled to host the world premiere of this film at the sixth edition of Devour! Filmmaker Vérane Frediani circumnavigated the globe to tell the story of the world of women and cuisine. Featuring some of the greats from Chef Dominique Crenn to Chef Barbara Lynch, to those at the very start of their careers, to those making incredible food in the farthest reaches of the world in places like Bolivia–the many successes and challenges that face women in the kitchen are revealed. This film has spurred a theme at this year’s festival–celebrating the Power of Women in Gastronomy.
