Anne-Sophie Pic is the first female three-star Michelin chef in France in more than 50 years. This interview in the Observer Food Monthly also includes some great background on and comments from the other female three-star Michelin chefs. One of Pic's observations of the differences between men and women chefs: "Yes, I see the way male chefs shout, the macho thing. Fine. But it's just not the way I want to run it. I think it's an odd way of getting through to people. Not a good way. If you shout it gives out the impression that there's something wrong. But I don't mean there's some kind of peace. We are very tense. People are very, very concentrated in the kitchen. More women chefsquieter kitchens! And better food."
