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.
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.
