"That love, that passion, that authenticity you have within yourself always connects with others." Those are wise words from Dominique Crenn, chef/owner of San Francisco's Atelier Crenn and author of a new book, Rebel Chef: In Search of What Matters. Known as one of the greatest chefs in the world, Crenn's gift is connecting with all humanity through her poetic cooking. It is her philosophy, not technique that brought her to the top. And it's a philosophy that's necessary at this moment of discord, mistrust, and also profound change and opportunity. Listen in to learn what inspired Crenn's pursuit of freedom over and above all else.

In March, HRN began producing all of our 35 weekly shows from our homes all around the country. It was hard work stepping away from our little recording studio, but we know that you rely on HRN to share resources and important stories from the world of food each week. It’s been a tough year for all of us, but right now HRN is asking for your help. Every dollar that listeners give to HRN provides essential support to keep our mics on. We've got some fresh new thank you gifts available, like our limited edition bandanas.
