A woman chef in New Orleans in the United States has been telling UN News how the restaurant business and cooking over a hot stove, has been a lifelong ‘labor of love’ for her. 

Roseann Rostoker decided she wanted to be a chef at age 14 and ultimately opened her own restaurant nine years ago.  

She spoke to the International Labour Organization (ILO) as part of a photography project to mark the UN agency’s centenary. The project called “Dignity at Work: The American Experience”, documents the working life of people across the United States. 

Kevin Cassidy, the Director of the ILO’s office for the United States, sat down with her following a busy shift at her restaurant, Red Gravy, in New Orleans.
