Worth Association’s Yes Shef! Elevating Women in Food & Wine
On August 12, 2019 Yes Shef! celebrated talented female Shefs and Sommeliers who are championing for a more equal representation in hospitality leadership. This culinary celebration featured five unique courses, each prepared by a notable female Shef and a student culinary apprentice. Women of the wine world selected a pairing to compliment the flavour profiles.
Yes Shef! raised thousands in scholarship funds to support the next generation of hospitality leaders. Five scholarships were awarded at the event to help elevate and empower women to pursue their passions.
