On May 9, Hamptons Doc Fest began offering a new documentary on its website. “Her Name Is Chef,” about changing gender roles in restaurant kitchens, is available online through Sunday, May 23.

According to Doc Fest founder and Executive Director Jaqui Lofaro, “‘Her Name Is Chef’ showcases the inspiring stories of six talented females who broke down the barriers of the male-dominated restaurant industry to earn the title of chef.”

Featured are “Top Chef” fan favorite Fatima Ali, Esther Choi (who runs three Korean restaurants in New York City), Elizabeth Falkner (a world-renowned chef in some of the country’s top kitchens), Juliet Masters (executive chef of The Edge in Harlem), Caroline Schiff (an executive pastry chef and food entrepreneur) and Hillary Sterling (who runs Vic’s in New York City, where simple Italian cooking and super-local ingredients take center stage). The film is hosted by powerhouse chef Leia Gaccione, who owns two hot restaurants in New Jersey.

“Her Name Is Chef,” (2021, 98 min.) is directed by Peter Ferriero who was moved to make the film after a first-hand experience at a female-owned restaurant in New Jersey where the owner was struggling to prove herself to her male colleagues.

To access the film for $12, visit hamptonsdocfest.com by May 23.
