Does the culinary industry lack diversity?

In 2012, the Chicago Tribune asked the question, “where are all the black chefs?” PBS also explored this question and interviewed several african-american chefs and food personalities, asking them what they thought about the lack of minority leadership within the industry. Diversity in the culinary industry topic We Are Chefs will explore over the next year by asking members of the American Culinary Federation to blog about their perspective and experiences regarding diversity in the culinary industry.
