Chef Dominique Crenn made history as the first female chef in the United States to earn two Michelin stars for her San Francisco restaurant Atelier Crenn. "Atelier," the French word for an artist's studio, is a fitting moniker considering Crenn envisions her meals as works of art. We'll talk to Crenn about weaving poetry into her menus, inspirations from her childhood in Brittany, France and her first cookbook, "Atelier Crenn: Metamorphosis of Taste."
