Description

FERN Talks & Eats is coming to Brooklyn’s Green Building on Oct 1. Join us for an engaging panel discussion that will delve into the #MeToo movement and issues of equity and inclusion in the restaurant business. Amanda Cohen, chef at Dirt Candy, wrote an essay about this in Esquire, highlighting the media’s neglect of women chefs until the current scandals. “Women may not have value as chefs, but as victims we’re finally interesting!” she wrote. We’ll hear about the ways that #MeToo intersects with race, gender, class and identity politics – ultimately influencing the food on our plates. We’ll hear personal stories, discuss the problematic past, and reimagine a future restaurant culture. It’s a discussion that’s nothing if not timely. We hope you’ll join us.

Panel:

  • Ashtin Berry, bartender and activist

  • Amanda Cohen, chef at Dirt Candy

  • Ruth Reichl, bestselling author and former Gourmet editor and New York Times restaurant critic

  • Alana McMillan, Co-founder of JaynesBeard

  • Moderator: Tracie McMillan, journalist and author of the award-winning bestseller, The American Way of Eating
