It’s not every day you get to pick the brain of who The World’s 50 Best Restaurants called the World’s Best Female Chef of 2016, but our very own celebrity chef Ryan Scott got that pleasure recently when Dominique Crenn stopped by our studios.
Dominique Crenn was born in France, where her parents exposed her to cuisine from around the world. She later moved to San Francisco and now runs two restaurants.
Crenn’s most well-known restaurant Atelier Crenn is located on Filmore and Pixley on the north side of the city. It was awarded two Michelin stars by the Michelin Guide, and became the first woman in America to achieve that feat.
Scott and Crenn touched on a number of topics during her visit, including growing up in France, food as a language, and even ended the interview with a short serenade.
