Synopsis by Clare Perez-Izaguirre Lopez

This documentary, directed and edited by Peter Ferriero, follows six female chefs that have made waves in a famously male-dominated industry. Leia Gaccione plays host, interviewing Fatima Ali, Esther Choi, Juliet Masters, Caroline Schiff, and Elizabeth Falkner as each opens up about just what it takes to be the best when competing with such acclaimed opposition. Special focus is also paid to Fatima Ali, who passed away from bone cancer in 2019. Co-produced by Alex Piccirillo and Leia Gaccione. Music by Justin Wright.
