Celebrating Lionesses Making Their Mark In The Food Industry

Editor's Note - It's the annual food edition at Lioness and we're talking to women around the globe who are leaving their mark on the food industry. Natasha chimes in.

Celebrating Lionesses Making Their Mark In The Food Industry - Lioness MagazineOur annual food issue is one of my favorite editions here at Lioness. There is something to be said about enjoying a fantastic meal with friends and family. Some of my favorite memories involve great celebrations with people I care about while sharing food, cocktails and interesting conversation.

When I was a child, New Year’s Day dinner was a big deal in the Clark house. My mother took out the best china and champagne, we had lobsters and dressed up in our best duds to celebrate the new year as a family. Even today, 20 years after my father has passed, we still gather to welcome the new year as a family with food and sweet prayers.

This month we are catching up with a few women who are bringing innovation to their respective cities through the food industry. They achieved this by recognizing what was already being offered and seeing what unique needs weren’t being met in the current climate. We take you Lionesses from Fort Valley, Georgia to Boston, Massachusetts to London, England and more, to see how some of your peers are shaking things up.

What are some of your food traditions? I want to hear your memorable stories and some of your favorite ways to break bread with the people you love. Tell me below in the comments section.

Until next time …

Unleash the Lioness Within!
