“Women maybe don’t get as many awards, but they can have more quality in their lives in many other ways. But I will say this: there are men who don’t delve [into their work] as consistently as most women I know, but they still get recognition for sloppy work. I see that a lot.” —Alex Raij, owner of Txikito and El Quinto Pino, and contributor to the new Book of Tapas [Fork in the Road/VV, Parts 1 and 2]
