“The restaurant industry is at the coal face of life – it’s a cameo of the way other workspaces are” says Karen Dudley, one of the speakers in this panel discussion. According to global research conducted by FairKitchens, who is our partner for this episode, 53% of chefs feel pushed to breaking point, 63% of chefs report having suffered from depression and 74% of chefs feel sleep-deprived to the point of exhaustion. This is an industry that has suffered immeasurably during lock-down, yet also one that has always been a tough place to work – there’s an intensity in all kitchens that others would find hard to understand.
