Growing up in France in an environment that celebrated fine dining, Dominique Crenn developed a love for the culinary arts from an early age. It would be a dream for many to become a chef in the top culinary country in the world, but Dominique decided to head to San Francisco to start her formal training to become a chef. In 2011 Crenn opened Atelier Crenn as an ode to what she calls ‘poetic culinaria’. The restaurant was awarded its first MICHELIN Star within a year. In November 2018, Dominique Crenn became the first female chef in the US to receive 3 MICHELIN Stars.

Dominique Crenn’s 3 MICHELIN Star restaurant Atelier Crenn opened in 2011 and embodies the artistry of fine dining. The San Francisco based establishment is famous for being a serene escape from the city, where its guests can reconnect to nature. Atelier Crenn is an invitation to the chef’s most intimate world, with paintings of her father hanging on the walls, serving dishes inspired by her childhood memories in France.
How Dominique Crenn’s menus are made
Dominique Crenn and their team designed a completely new menu around our Uqonic Chefs home dinner box concept. The menus are based on the availability of local vegetables, with vegetarians in mind.
Dominique Crenn wanted to develop achievable, elegant, simple, but classy dishes. She believes that Uqonic Chefs customers should be able to re-create her menus without problems.
Crenn’s created mixed season dishes that promote healthy eating. That is one of her missions in life after she suffered from cancer. She wanted to promote the vegetable in all its forms and show people what you can do with it. This has resulted in surprising tastes, with exciting herbs and spices while using molecular gastronomy to her advantage.
