WIG is a brand new culinary conference to celebrate and honour International Women's Day, and raise the profile
of female chefs around the world.
Award-winning journalist and president of Parabere Forum, Maria Canabal, was voted ‘Most Influential Woman in Gastronomy’ in 2015. Her annual event gathers the world’s leaders – both women women and men – in the field of food to promote women’s views and voices and develop new perspectives on key issues within the gastronomy industry.
Gastronauts Asia is pleased to present Women in Gastronomy (WIG), a new global food forum at The Sukhothai Bangkok to promote and empower women in food, beverage and hospitality. This one-of-a-kind culinary gathering falls on International Women’s Day 2018 and will bring together a dynamic group of the world’s leading female chefs from Thailand and beyond for a full-day conference featuring chef talks, presentations, panel discussions and – over a long-format 12-course luncheon – plenty of eating.
All the participating chefs have had their respective restaurants recognised globally, with several holding coveted Michelin-stars or been included in prestigious local or worldwide rankings. Already confirmed to appear are Ana Ros from Hisa Franko, Slovenia, who currently holds the title of ‘World’s Best Female Chef’; Cristina Bowerman from the Michelin-starred Glass Hosteria in Rome, Italy; and Martina Caruso from the Michelin-starred Hotel Signum on Salina Island, Italy.
