a member of the jury affected by cancer

For the 15th anniversary of its favorite culinary program, M6 saw the big picture. Top chef will be entitled to a host of star chefs, on the jury, for the 2024 edition, which begins on March 13, 2024. In addition to Philippe Etchebest, Paul Pairet, Glenn Viel and Hélène Darroze, we also find Stéphanie Le Quellec, a former candidate now respected chef, and Dominique Crenn.

Cancer in 2019

And the latter is none other than the first woman to have obtained 3 stars in the Michelin guide, on the other side of the Atlantic. A size. She who had taken up residence in the United States was elected “Best chef in the world” in 2016. Three years later, she faced a terrible ordeal, that of her cancer. Indeed, in the columns of Libération, the chef tells how she met the person who shares her life today: the actress Maria Bello.

About the one who plays the bar owner in “Coyote Girls”, she explains: “When we fell in love, I had just learned that I had cancer. Maria said to me: ‘OK, let’s do cancer’. We danced, we laughed, we had dinners.”

“Almost lost your life twice”

At 59, this remission is not the only victory she can include on her menu. Dominique Crenn also escaped certain death in 2009 in a car accident. This is what she confided to Télé Mag, assuring: “When, like me, you have almost lost your life twice, you have nothing to lose. I am positive, I want to give everything to others and to young people”. And to add: “No one made me, I made myself. And I want them to understand that they are going to make themselves. They have to learn and not be afraid. I sow a seed.”
