French chef Dominique Crenn, the first woman to be awarded three Michelin stars in the United States, has announced an upcoming "boutique Crenn," which, judging by the images on her Instagram account, will be a bakery and pastry shop in California.
Named one of the best chefs in the world in 2016 by the World's 50 Best Restaurants organization, Crenn is exploring ew culinary avenues by opening a bakery and pastry shop in San Francisco. She has already found success in the city with her triple-Michelin-starred Atelier Crenn, as well as at Petit Crenn, a more accessible address paying homage to her Breton roots.
Although she grew up in the Parisian suburbs, Crenn is emphasizing her attachment to the Brittany region with this new project. The chef, who became more widely known to audiences via Netflix's "Chef's Table," shared pictures of kouign-amann, an iconic Breton treat. The boutique is also said to be planning a line of pains aux chocolat.
Earlier this year, Crenn, who has launched a campaign called "Wake UP" aimed at raising awareness of climate change, also shared images of raisin buns, lemon-poppyseed cakes, and black sesame financiers.
The chef has been vague about the actual opening date of her bakery, only saying that it's due "in a few months." However, she did announce the opening of a pop-up boutique in September, where diners can preview her recipes.
