Insightful documentary portraying female Chefs
28 October 2018 | by Banshee62See all my reviews

The Heat is an insightful documentary from writer director Maya Gallus, who attempts to tackle the inequality in kitchens between male and female chefs. The result is an interesting snap shot into the lives of eight current and ex chefs, from the finest dining establishments in France to café owners in Canada. Maya Gallus isn't passing judgement here and for most women The Heat isn't saying anything we don't already know namely, women need to perform one hundred percent better than our male counterparts. The most telling comment for me was from one chef who revealed she was part of the problem and had treated young male staff in the same abusive manner that she had suffered. The conclusion seemed to be that if you are a woman and you work in a kitchen environment that fosters mentoring and support you are lucky but that other women are not so fortunate. It would have been a more rounded documentary for me if it had included some male points of view on this subject, but nevertheless a documentary worth seeing just for the sneak peek into award chef Anna-Sophie Pic's kitchen at Maison Pic.
