Dominque Crenn is doing incredible things. Not only is she one of the most effective voices calling for gender equality in the restaurant industry but she continues to fight for inclusion, understanding and compassion in a broader sense as well.
Her latest campaign ‘Wake Up’, #Incrennible started on Instagram but has caught fire across the Internet with some of the biggest names in gastronomy jumping on board. The campaign’s message is simple, ‘Wake Up’ and do something for climate change by pledging to make one change for sustainability.
In an Instagram post on her account Crenn calls for everyone in the food industry, not just fine dining chefs, but everyone, from servers, to producers, dishwashers and sommeliers to name one thing they would do to fight the climate emergency.
Crenn, the first woman in America to receive a three star rating from Michelin is a chef, artist and activist all in one. Crenn has continued to inspire, not only for the astounding level of creativity in her kitchen, but also her ceaseless determination to change the world for the better.
With the world facing an unprecedented catastrophe brought about by man-made climate change and chefs are stepping up to the plate to provide solutions and challenge the way people think about food and its production.
Looking to climate change, there has been a clear shift recently from trying to attain big changes to accumulated small change, and ‘tend to the garden you can touch’. The ‘Wake Up’ campaign is a force for positive action within the food industry and driven by Dominique Crenn who embodies that force.
