This March 8 International Women's Day, in YOOM ™ we want to focus on those women who have managed throughout history to become benchmarks of professional cuisine.

And it is that while women are the ones who have mostly been responsible for the task of cooking at home, in the high-level restoration women have been absent due to circumstances such as the late incorporation of women to work or the lack of conciliation.

From YOOM ™ we want to help give visibility to the 13 women who have managed to win the 3 Michelin Stars throughout history and also encourage and contribute to the increasing numbers of women who can take these awards high.

Marie Bourgeois and Eugénie Brazier were the first to receive what is considered by chefs and media as the highest distinction of gastronomy and, in 87 years, only eleven more women, have been able to repeat this feat.

The last to have succeeded is Dominique Crenn and also, the first American and head chef of the Atelier Crenn, named, also “best cook in the world” for 50 Best.

In addition, those mentioned above have won the three “Michelin Stars” Sophie Bise, Annie Féolde, Nadia Santini, Luisa Marelli Valazza, Elena Arzak, Helena Puolakka, Clare Smyth, Anne-Sophie Pic and Carme Ruscall.
