Mary of One Perfect Bite and some other women food bloggers (including myself) are blogging our way through the 50 Women Game Changers In Food published by Gourmet in May ’11. Some of the women on the list you will know, others you may not, but either way, this will be a great 50 week journey to learn more about these women that inspire the way we think about food today.

If you haven’t heard of Elizabeth Andoh, you are probably not the only one. But, she is a cooking superstar in Japan. Director and instructor at Taste of Culture, a culinary arts program in Japan, Elizabeth Andoh was born and raised in America. As an exchange student back in the 1960s, Andoh came to Japan from New York to pursue anthropology. She is also devoted to parsing and explaining the finer points of Japanese cuisine to the rest of the world, as a writer for Gourmet, cookbook author and culinary teacher in suburban Tokyo. Her comprehensive and well written cookbooks (and there are plenty of them!) bring her to this list of influential women.
