It’s a Man’s World


How paradoxical that the world’s greatest chefs have all been man! Cooking would clearly seem to be field which lies exclusively within the ladies realm, yet the annals of cookery are replete with masculine names: Brillat Savarin, Ritz Diat, Larousse. To compound the puzzle, there has rarely been a tinge of rumor or scandal casting doubts on the masculinity of these heroes of cuisine.
