Running Time: 60 mins

Exclusive to VIP All Access pass holders.

In the culinary crush, with its abundance of creative cuisine, fueled by the freshest of ingredients and celebrity chefs, there exists an embarrassment of riches that seems almost unfair. Americas appetite for gastronomic excellence is for real. Dominique Crenn, chef/owner of Atelier Crenn in San Francisco, understands and brings her maverick sensibilities to keep the dishes honest and the quality high. Born and raised in France, Crenn arrived in San Francisco working under legends Jeremiah Tower and Mark Franz of Stars. Crenn moved to Jakarta and became Indonesias first female executive chef. Soon she returned to the Bay Area earning her first Michelin Star at Luce. In 2010, Crenn trounced Iron Chef Michael Symon during a sizzling episode of the beloved Iron Chef competition. In 2011, she opened Atelier Crenn, which eventually received two of Michelins coveted stars, making her the first woman in North America to reach a two-star status. Using a master chefs skill and the sensitivity of a poet, Ms. Crenn delights the senses and nourishes the soul.
