Some of you know of my favourite side-hustle, the Feminist Food Club, a network of trans and cis women in gastronomy that Ruth Bartlett and I founded two and a half years ago. One of my earliest ideas for it was to create a map of all the trans and cis female owned food businesses in the city. Because one of the major arguments about why there just aren’t as many famous trans or cis female chefs is that there just aren’t that many. Which is entirely untrue but hard to proof wrong without hard data. So I sat down and with the help of the group researched from high to low and west to east, and compiled all of the businesses with opening hours I could find in a handy google map. Over 160 places are on it right now, which seems a lot but is still far from the truth. So please, if you are trans or cis female and own a food business which isn’t on the map yet, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with all the necessary info so I can fix that.
