Although the International Women’s Day is celebrated on Friday the 8th of March, two of the world’s greatest chefs Anne-Sophie Pic and Clare Smyth will prepare and host a dinner in honor of it on Monday 11th March. The dinner will be held in restaurant ‘La Dame de Pic London’ at the Four Seasons Hotel London. Guests will be welcomed to celebrate women working in the restaurant industry. A great example for other female chefs! Why not celebrate the International Women’s Day 2020 with these kind of dinners or lunches to ask attention for women in the restaurant industry? Collaborate with other female chefs and you could even invite speakers about related subjects. To reach more people you might even start a new contest and choose for example ‘the female restaurant owner of the year’.
