What a great mix of Los Angeles females involved in food. I've seen Leslie Brenner speak before and she's extremely intelligent and engaging. Interestingly, this event is hosted by Los Angeles City Controller, Laura Chick. (via Slow Food LA)
From Controller Chick:
Please join me on Thursday, September 14, 2006 for my next Women's Dialogue: "Women in the Kitchen". I will be host to six incredible and prominent women from the culinary world for a panel discussion focusing on their experiences in this male-dominated field. Our panelists are:
