Traditionally seen as a boys club, the professional kitchen has been undergoing some changes in recent years. When Ariane founded D’Artagnan in 1985 there was one female chef among her New York customers, but today there are many women leading kitchens across the country. In honor of Women’s History Month, we spoke to three of our clients who have smashed the stainless steel ceiling and become executive chefs. Meet these extraordinary chefs in the post below.
Did you know that D’Artagnan is a woman-owned business? Ariane Daguin founded the company in 1985, as a 20-something who dropped out of college to follow her dream of providing quality foods from small farms to restaurants, retailers and home cooks across the nation. Today, she oversees a company of 280 employees with offices and warehouses in five states.
