French-born chef Dominique Crenn, winner of three Michelin stars, provides a personal and thoughtful chronicle of her varied life and career--along with myriad examples of sexism in the professional kitchen. The work is replete with her observations and opinions. Despite Crenn's intensely interesting story, Hope Newhouse's narration lacks the appropriate grit. Her performance is workmanlike, at moments effective, but simplistic, and immature in tonal quality, all despite her pitch-perfect French pronunciations. Atelier Crenn, the chef's San Francisco restaurant, is described as a "must" when one is in San Francisco. Crenn is outspoken, gay, and creative, her health challenges not slowing her a bit. Her ultimate motive is to share that living itself is the greatest gift. W.A.G. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2020]
