Who Wears the Pants?
Maxine Thompson does, that’s for sure. The London-based, Australian-born chef and former fashion executive couldn’t find work pants that were appropriate for women so she created her own. Polka Pants have now become a cult favorite among women in restaurants, kitchens, and beyond and Maxine shares her story, spots and all. Amanda Frederickson, meanwhile, tells how she changed careers, went to culinary school, and wound up in the Williams Sonoma test kitchen. Today, she creates videos and recipes to help home cooks sharpen their skills and expand their repertoires. This episode is presented by Le Cordon Bleu and La Brea Bakery.
