Your favorite restaurant reservation app, RESY, presents a tantalizing dining opportunity. Resy’s The Women of Food campaign returns for a fourth year to honor the women who power restaurants. It’s your chance to get tickets to highly sought out restaurants for very special dinners.
“While there is certainly still work to be done, it is inspiring to see so many talented female chefs and industry leaders recognized,” says Hillary Sterling, Executive Chef of Ci Siamo in New York City. “I’ve been fortunate to learn from tremendously talented female chefs, and now have the important role of mentoring the next generation of women in the kitchen.” (see Hobnob’s recent review of Ci Siamo for a “taste” of this chef’s talents)

HOW CAN I SUPPORT THE CAUSE FURTHER?
If you can’t make it to the dinners, you might be in the market for some kitchen goods from women-owned businesses. Resy will partner with stylist Beverly Nguyen, owner of BEVERLY’S New York City, a kitchen and specialty housewares market currently located within Nordstrom’s NYC flagship, to curate this collection.
“I am deeply motivated by nourishing those around me with storytelling and food. This opportunity to partner with Resy’s The Women of Food initiative is one of many incredible ways to ignite and connect our beautiful communities together, especially following a time of distance,” says Beverly Nguyen.
A portion of proceeds will be donated to the National Women’s Law Center, an organization that fight for gender justice, taking on issues that are central to the lives of women and girls. Beginning June 15 the items will be sold at shopwomenoffood.com
Throughout June, Resy will highlight the brightest minds in the business including: Mashama Bailey rethinking how a restaurant can be run; Crystal Wahpepah fighting for Indigenous ingredients and cuisine; Amanda Cohen speaking out about female chef erasure; Niki Nakayama and wife Carole Iida-Nakayama sharing their success with a larger community.
