Description

The debut cookbook from the first female chef in America 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. This impressive and beautiful cookbook by a chef who is often the only woman to be mentioned in the same breath with other culinary giants is bound to captivate the food world.

Review Text

"Crenn's book is to dining at her restaurant what an annotated copy of Hamlet is to seeing the play performed for the first time." - EATER.com " Atelier Crenn perfectly captures the creativity, talent, and taste of Dominique Crenn. At Atelier Crenn, she balances her French DNA and true American passion for ingredients that are local and sustainably raised and farmed. Crenn's talent lies in her ability to express a delicate, original, and genuine voice in contemporary Californian haute cuisine."- Daniel Boulud , Chef/Owner, Daniel "To dine at Dominique Crenn's atelier is to take a delightful surprise-filled stroll through her world, Brittany and California, seacoast and forest and farm, her impressions translated into delicious tableaux by means of the modern cook's full range of tools and techniques. Atelier Crenn is a fascinating window into the life, thought, and painstaking craft of one of our most accomplished chefs."- Harold McGee , author of On Food and Cooking "Dominique Crenn quite literally puts poetry on a plate every day at Atelier Crenn-she's a fantastically talented chef who has already contributed a great deal to the rich culinary history of the Bay Area. This book is the story of her food, finding her voice as a chef, and her culinary philosophy, all of which will surely inspire readers to turn their own kitchens into ateliers."- Nathan Myhrvold , coauthor of Modernist Cuisine: The Art and Science of Cooking and Modernist Cuisine at Home , author of The Photography of Modernist Cuisine "Dominique Crenn's creativity and passion shine in this gorgeous book that showcases her unique cuisine. I am happy to have her as a friend!"- Elena Arzak , Chef and co-director, Restaurant Arzak
