On June 8th at the Astor Center on Lafayette Street in New York, a panel of food experts will blind-taste five courses of dishes prepared by guest chefs in an attempt to discern whether there are differences in the way male and female chefs cook. There will also be a discussion about what factors contribute to the experts’ guesses. 

As someone with a background in gender studies, I find this especially interesting. What’s perhaps more interesting to me is how the idea for this event came about. 
Tickets are $35. Visit the Astor Center’s website for reservation information.
