On March 1 and 2, leading female minds from throughout the many facets of gastronomy, from science to farming, chefs to sommeliers, will gather in Bilbao, Spain for the first-ever Parabere Forum. Though not exclusively for women, the event will focus on the growing role of women in the culinary field, providing round tables, workshops, classes, and more. Professionals will come from five different continents to share their experience, including Gustu’s Kamilla Seidler, Leonor Espinosa of Bogotá’s Leo Cocina y Cava, and Brazilian chef Roberta Sudbrack, from her eponymously titled restaurant in Rio de Janeiro.
