3 Stars for Dominque Crenn's Atelier Crenn
I’ve been fortunate enough to eat at Atelier Crenn a few times and it’s always been one of my favorite meals of all time. After meeting Dominque Crenn at her restaurant, I was not only in awe of her as a Chef but also as a person. She emanates so much energy, passion and love for food and people. She’s the perfect example of why us Chefs do what we do.
Not long after I got to meet her at Atelier Crenn and chat with her about cooking, inspiration, family…I had the pleasure of working an event with her. I shared a table with her, where we got to do our thing. Here we, doing what we are most passionate about, cooking for people, while supporting a noteworthy cause.
I also happened to be pregnant at the time and finishing up my last week before going on maternity leave. It was really a special time for me and now to see her being awarded her 3 stars finally, it makes me appreciate even more, the opportunity I had to cook side by side with her.
We need more Chefs like Dominque Crenn, more women like her who can lead and set an example for our future girls who want to grow up and do the same things we do. I hope that I can represent what Dominque Crenn has represented to me for my baby girl and all other young girls who dream of working in a kitchen to one day become a chef that will break boundaries and make a imprint on the food scene.
