Allegations of sexual assault against U.S. celebrity chef Mario Batali spotlight once again an industry known for its macho work environment as the #MeToo era claims yet another high-profile American scalp.Batali was previously accused of sexual misconduct and harassment last December, leading the restaurant group he co-founded, B&B Hospitality, removing him from operations, and television channel ABC axing him from his cooking show.He denies the latest and more serious allegations of assault to CBS. A number of chefs have been publicly accused – but none as famous as Batali.In mid-May, Washington-based celebrity chef Mike Isabella – the star of "Top Chef" who owned 11 restaurants in the capital – was sued for sexually harassing a former employee, an accusation he denied.In 2017, female chefs made up less than 5 percent of the world's Michelin star recipients, and only two were head chefs at the World's 50 Best Restaurants.
