7 Days of Women in Food

Restaurants act as metaphors for the places that we live. As business owners, they are manifestations of ourselves, an opportunity to share something personal, something honest. As customers, we dine in restaurants not just to celebrate but also to learn, to experience newness and to find comfort.
