Chef Dominique Crenn Brings Innovation to the Table
Hold onto your taste buds, Chef Dominique Crenn is about to take your dining experience to a whole new level. In a bold move, she’s introducing Upside Food’s cell-cultured chicken to her San Francisco restaurant, Bar Crenn. This is not just any chicken dish—it’s a game-changer that combines sustainability and culinary excellence in a single bite.
A Partnership That’s Changing the Game
Chef Crenn has joined forces with California startup Upside Foods to pioneer the use of cell-cultured chicken in restaurant cuisine. This collaboration marks a turning point in the world of sustainable dining. With the recent USDA label approval and Grant of Inspection, Upside Foods is now ready to bring its “cell-cultivated” chicken products to the market, starting with Chef Crenn’s innovative creation.
Sustainable, Flavorful, and Animal-Friendly
Forget what you thought you knew about meat. Upside Foods’ cell-cultured chicken is changing the game. Created from live animal stem cells, this revolutionary process doesn’t require animal slaughter. It’s an ethical and sustainable alternative that still delivers the flavors and textures we crave. Chef Crenn herself couldn’t believe the quality and taste when she tried it. Juicy, delicious, and better than any store-bought chicken breast she’d ever had, she was instantly sold on the concept.
Tastes Like Chicken, Looks Like Edible Art
Chef Crenn’s cell-cultured chicken dish at Bar Crenn is a true masterpiece. Picture this: Upside Foods’ chicken, coated in a mouthwatering tempura batter infused with Recado Negro, a charred chile paste from Mexico’s Yucatan region. It’s fried to perfection, drizzled with a tantalizing burnt chili aioli, and adorned with fresh edible flowers and greens sourced straight from Crenn’s own Bleu Belle Farm.
But the magic doesn’t stop there. As the dish arrives at your table, you’ll be captivated by the presentation. The black ceramic vessel, meticulously hand-painted with Mexican motifs and Crenn’s logo, holds a surprise. As the lid is lifted, a mystical cloud of dry ice billows out, adding a touch of theatricality to the experience. You’ll be encouraged to savor every morsel, picking up the chicken with your own hands for a truly immersive and tactile culinary adventure.
A Tantalizing Glimpse into the Future
