Follow Jenner Tomaska, executive chef at Next Restaurant Chicago, for food so perfectly plated, it’s more of a decorative object than a meal.

Dominique Crenn

Dominique Crenn has been named the World’s Best Female Chef, which is a delineation which apparently still needs to exist. Maybe because she might whoop all the guys in the boys’ club.
