Austin chef Sonya Coté, executive chef of Hillside Farmacy and former chef of East Side Show Room, has been named one of Marie Claire’s “Women on Top,” an award that celebrates women under forty who are creatively reinventing their industries. Coté earned the distinguished honor for her valiant support of local food communities.
The magazine selected women in fashion, business, food, and numerous other industries who have shown “unparalleled talent, vision, and backbone in blazing their own trails.”
“I’m honored to accept this award alongside so many strong, inspiring women,” Coté said in a press release. “I want to thank Marie Claire for recognizing how important local food is to the health and well-being of our communities.”
Coté and the other “Women on Top” will be featured in the November issue of Marie Claire, which hits stands Oct. 23. Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood and daughter of the late Gov. Ann Richards, is included in the list as well.
