Latin/Spanish-Speaking Chefs & Cooks in US Upscale Restaurants

"Side Dish" Project:



The Spanish-speaking and other Latin immigrants who make up a very large percentage of the chefs and cooks in mostly high end restaurants in the US, regardless of cuisine, is a group of professionals who are often underpaid and unrecognized, even though they make up the backbone of the U.S. restaurant industry. How many cases are there of such abuses? Where are these professional cooks? In which cities? In which restaurants? Why don’t they speak up? This is an investigative story par excellence.
