Contents Introduction: "There's a girl in the kitchen!" : why a study of women chefs -- Home vs. haute: gender and status in the evolution of professional chefs -- From good to great: food media and becoming an elite chef -- Fitting in and standing out: entering the professional restaurant kitchen -- Bitches, girly girls, or moms: women's perceptions of gender appropriate leadership styles in professional kitchens -- Challenging "choices" : women who leave restaurant kitchen work -- Where are the great women chefs?
Summary A number of recent books, magazines, and television programs have emerged that promise to take viewers inside the exciting world of professional chefs. While media suggest that the occupation is undergoing a transformation, one thing remains clear: being a chef is a decidedly male-dominated job. Taking the Heat examines how the world of professional chefs is gendered, what conditions have led to this gender segregation, and how women chefs feel about their work in relation to men
