Chef-owner of San Francisco’s two-Michelin-star Atelier Crenn—as well as Petit Crenn and Bar Crenn—Dominique is the 2018 James Beard award winner for Best Chef: West. A native of Brittany, France, Dominique found her culinary heart in San Francisco. Before launching a place of her own, she cooked at the iconic Stars, then at Campton Place, and later at Luce at the Intercontinental, where she was executive chef. At Atelier Crenn, her food reflects her French roots, her travels throughout Europe and Asia, and her love of San Francisco and the Bay Area’s farmers and vintners.

The glorious richness of this melt-in-your-mouth smoked, then butter-basted and grilled salmon is enhanced by the creamy-acidic notes of a classic beurre blanc. Test kitchen tip: Take the pressure off and make the beurre blanc ahead, and then store it warm in an insulated container until ready to serve.
