Executive Chef Grace Goudie of Scratchboard Kitchen


New Monthly Collaboration Series: A Recipe for Empowerment: Women in Culinary Driving Change
Chef Goudie is the driving force behind this new, monthly dinner series and culinary collaboration called A Recipe for Empowerment: Women in Culinary Driving Change. The goal is to provide a platform for female figures in the Chicagoland hospitality industry to come together and learn from each other while also helping the community—a portion of proceeds from each dinner will benefit the guest hospitality worker’s charity of choice.
