ABOUT THE SPEAKERS

Dominique Crenn, Chef/Co-Owner, Atelier Crenn

Dominique Crenn's parents had a strong influence on her love for the culinary arts- she began her formal training upon moving to San Francisco in 1988 to work at Stars. In 2011, Crenn opened Atelier Crenn where her "poetic culinaria" earned one Michelin Star in 2011, and its second the following year. As of November 2018, Dominique Crenn beat her own record and became the first female chef in the US to receive three Michelin Stars. Her latest creation, Bar Crenn, was also awarded one Michelin star the same year.

Crenn was awarded World's Best Female Chef in 2016 by San Pellegrino's 50 Best and in 2018 earned James Beard Foundation's title of Best Chef: West. As an active member of the culinary community, Crenn promotes sustainability and equality through her collaboration with various organizations.
