Chefs uniting for women's health makes for a more serious podcast
Although "What's Eric Eating" is usually a lighthearted conversation, this week's episode has a more serious tone as chef Erin Smith Feges and Dr. Lori Choi (whose husband is Agricole Hospitality co-owner Ryan Pera) join CultureMap food editor Eric Sandler to discuss I'll Have What She's Having, a new organization that's uniting women in the hospitality industry for the cause of raising money for and awareness of women's health issues.

A New Pop-Up Series Highlights Women’s Health
"We’d need the length of a rap album to list all the industry ladies you have and have not heard of that are participating in I ’ll Have What She’s Having, the newly minted Houston organization of women chefs, hospitality professionals, entrepreneurs, physicians, scientists and artists."
But what you need to know is that it kicks off its dinner pop-up series, A Taste of Things to Come, today at Coltivare at 6:30 p.m. The goal is to raise community awareness and funds in support of women’s health. The goal for this year? $1 million. The goal for years to come? Getting back the funding for our healthcare. "
