Dominique Crenn      

Chef & Owner of the Three-Michelin-Starred Restaurant Atelier Crenn

Chef and owner of Atelier Crenn, Petit Crenn, and Bar Crenn in San Francisco, Dominique Crenn, is one of the most celebrated chefs in the world. In 2016, she was named the Best Female Chef in the World (by the World’s 50 Best) and was featured in Netflix’s “Chef’s Table” hit show. She has received scores of accolades, including being the first female chef in the U.S. to receive two Michelin stars and being honored as a Food & Wine Best Chef and Eater’s “Chef of the Year” in 2015. Her first cookbook, "Atelier Crenn: Metamorphosis of Taste," was released in November 2015 and received several Best Cookbook of the Year awards.

Crenn grew up in Brittany, France, and credits her father and his best friend (a restaurant critic) with inspiring her to become a chef by taking her to some of Europe’s best restaurants when she was very young. That was a nearly impossible dream growing up in France, where men dominate fine dining restaurant kitchens, but it was one that she achieved. Today, she runs two of the best restaurants in the U.S.

She has a successful line of cookware and tableware with Daniel Boulud and Michel Richard by Lenox. She is on the Lexus Culinary Council and has several brand partnerships, including with LG and Georg Jensen. She has been featured in People magazine and The New York Times, has made many appearances on TV, and has been written about in many publications worldwide.
