My roommate is a lovely person. He grew up in Pittsburgh, was raised Catholic, is one of four brothers and describes himself as “40 percent Irish, 60 percent German.” But when I asked him what his favorite Asian food was, he replied, “General Tso’s Chicken.” I’m not going to lie — General Tso’s Chicken is pretty damn good — and I find the pretentiousness surrounding the authenticity of Americanized Asian food to be extremely annoying. When I’m eating a $14 Dynamite Roll from Wokcano, I don’t particularly care if “real Japanese sushi doesn’t use cream cheese;” I go to Wokcano for sake bombs, not authentic sushi. Regardless, having General Tso’s Chicken be your favorite Asian food was a little questionable to me. Does he even know how much great Asian food there is out there? Turns out, he didn’t.

Together, women can do anything. That was part of the thinking behind establishing a chapter of Les Dames d'Escoffier International (LDEI) in Birmingham five years ago. This philanthropic organization, made up of women in the food, beverage, and hospitality industries, was founded by Carol Brock in New York City in 1976. Its goal was and still is to increase the prominence of women in food industries that were (and still are) largely dominated by men. When Chef Angela Schmidt moved to Birmingham from Atlanta, she knew a chapter of LDEI was exactly what her new hometown was missing. In 2013, Schmidt called up Pardis Stitt (wife and business partner to Highland Bar and Grill's Frank Stitt) and Becky Satterfield (owner/pastry chef at Satterfield's) to ask if they wanted to help start a chapter.
