Bangalore: A decade ago, being a chef was not considered a best career for a young woman; today it is seen as a profession. Women have stormed into almost every field and are considered equal to male colleagues. So, when it comes to the kitchen, no wonder they are bridging their gap and reaching higher levels than men. Women have had a long hard road in being recognized as a chef or even allowed to work in this industry. Traditionally, women have been responsible for making simple meals at home. But here are a few who took this everyday job as a passion and made an impact in the culinary world. Meet five young women chefs and find out what makes them a star attraction.
