2010_06_alex-raij.jpgWhen asked about sexism in the kitchen, Txikito's Alex Raij says she feels neither under-recognized nor under-celebrated. But she does think men go about the chef job differently and they sometimes get kudos for sloppy work. Also, "Being a male chef is a sexy occupation and to be a woman chef is not. I have no idea why that is. I've seen women try to embrace that 'oh-so-sexy' image and I always find it distasteful." [FitR]
