Atelier Crenn: Metamorphosis of Taste
The debut cookbook from the first female American chef to earn two Michelin stars.
Atelier Crenn is the debut cookbook of Dominique Crenn, the first female chef in America to be awarded two Michelin stars—and arguably the greatest female chef in the country.
This gorgeous book traces Crenn’s rise from her childhood in France to her unprecedented success with her own restaurant, Atelier Crenn, in San Francisco. Crenn’s food is centered around organic, sustainable ingredients with an unusual, inventive, and always stunning presentation. To put it simply, Crenn’s dishes are works of art. Her recipes reflect her poetic nature, with evocative names like “A Walk in the Forest,” “Birth,” and “The Sea.” Even the dishes that sound familiar, like Fish and Chips, or Broccoli and Beef Tartare, challenge the expected with their surprising components and her signature creative plating. Her first cookbook is a captivating treat for anyone who loves food.
“Atelier Crenn perfectly captures the creativity, talent, and taste of Dominique Crenn.” —Daniel Boulud
