If you've been following our president's latest appearances in the press, you'll know that JBF is committed to promoting the work of women in the culinary world. Now, thanks to an opportunity to collaborate with Vermilion restaurant, we're about to take some big steps to grow our work in this area. On September 18, we're joining Vermilion's founder and owner, Rohini Dey, to host an exciting panel discussion about the rarity of women in leadership roles in the industry. Some powerful female talent will join Ungaro and Rohini on the panel, including Martha Stewart, Lidia Bastianich, International Culinary Center founder and CEO Dorothy Hamilton, and Martha Teichner of CBS News. The event, which is open to the general public, will also include a five-course Indian-Latin fusion dinner with optional wine pairings, and will also introduce the new JBF/Vermilion Women in Culinary Leadership Scholarship and the new Chefs for Women program, a roster of lauded chefs from across the country who are committed to supporting the scholarship.
