Women in the Food Industry co-founder, Mecca Ibrahim, got the chance to speak to Luciana Berry about her experiences championing Brazilian food, cooking for Prince Edward, braving the critics and what happened after MasterChef The Professionals.
James Haywood from OpenKitchen made part of the interview into a short podcast where you can exclusively hear Luciana’s views on how she has found being a woman in the food industry. You can listen to the podcast:
When Luciana was asked for her advice to someone who is just starting out, she said: "Believe in yourself, be honest with yourself and follow your instincts. A lot of people will try to give you advice and put you down, but you need to sell yourself. You really need to believe in yourself. There are a lot of doors that could be closed to you. But if the door isn’t open, go open a window. Find another route."
