Garstig is a term in German used to describe the disobedience of, often girls, who behave against the norm or in a commonly perceived ‘nasty’ way. Within the UK food industry, female chefs only make up 18%. Women still get labelled as cooks, where a chef is seen as a male role. Behind closed doors, these women still get pushed around and harassed, an issue that needs to be brought to light within society.This work highlights not only their strength, but celebrates female chefs sharing their stories and experiences. Through contemporary visual matter, Garstig celebrates the food itself, but most importantly the new wave of women pushing back to pursue this male dominated career.
