The Women of Food London Dinner Series


Celebrate The Women of Food in London through a special dinner series.

When it comes to women in the hospitality industry, the most recent count shows just 17 percent of professional chefs in the UK are female, and of the 57% of women in the industry, one in four are in the most junior roles, 57% in part-time ones (Source: Office of National Statistics).

As a continuation of The Women of Food, Resy’s tribute to the women who make restaurants special in London and beyond, you’re invited to a dinner series at female-owned spots across the US and UK. Select female chefs from Los Angeles to London, Miami to Chicago, will host intimate dinners at their restaurants featuring menus inspired by the women they hold dearly, from mentors to colleagues, farmers to makers.

Here in London, chef Selin Kiazim and sommelier Laura Christie of Oklava in Shoreditch will serve a special, one-night-only menu on June 28 that spotlights all the women who make it happen – from front of house to back of house.

“There is a long way to go still but there are plenty of operators who are trying and successfully running a different, more inclusive kind of restaurant,” says Kiazim. There are reasons to be optimistic.

At its core, The Women of Food believes that behind every great restaurant is a woman, and these trailblazing women-owned restaurants are testament to that.
