Art at Curate 2016 Series Three - Chef Esben Holmboe Bang

Art at Curate Series 3
Esben Holmboe Bang
From Three-Michelin-Starred Maaemo, Norway

16 - 25 September 2016


Esben Holmboe Bang is the head chef, co-owner and creative force behind Maaemo, the ground-breaking restaurant from Oslo, Norway, that was awarded three Michelin stars in 2016. He was born in Copenhagen but it was in Oslo that his culinary career took off for the stratosphere.

Growing up in a family where there was a great deal of emphasis on sustainability and agriculture, it is little wonder the chef’s inspiration comes from nature. His cuisine is rooted in the natural flavours and quality of the raw ingredients, stripping them back to their bare essentials before recomposing them into entirely new narratives, bringing the tastes of Norway to life on a plate.

Chef Ebsen’s bold style of cooking has won the him legions of fans from the cognoscenti, and a listing in Time Magazine’s “100 Most Influential Chefs in the World”. He was also named by Elite Traveler Magazine as the “2016 Young Chef of the Year”.

Guy Martin
From Two-Michelin-Starred Le Grand Véfour, France

Born in 1957 in Bourg Saint Maurice, Guy Martin started working at a local pizzeria in 1976. He chanced upon the classic cookbook “Gastronomie Pratique” and went on to try out the 500 recipes on his own. The rest is culinary history.

In 1981, Chef Martin joined Relais & Châteaux, worked for three years as Chef de Cuisine at Château de Coudrée on Lake Geneva, then in Château de Divonne where he became Executive Chef at age 26. In 1985, he earned his first Michelin star. In 1989, his second. In 1991, he made his move to the historic Le Grand Véfour.

Chef Martin’s style is modern, sensuous and bold, with an emphasis on high-quality produce from the various regions of France. An art and music aficionado, he cites Jacques Offenbach, Mozart and Glenn Gould as the inspiration to explore culinary boundaries, conceiving new colours, flavours and presentations for his creations.

The acclaimed chef has authored more than 20 cookbooks throughout his career and also hosted a television programme. In 2012, he was decorated an “Officer” of the Ordre de La Légion d’Honneur (National Order of the Legion of Honour) by the French Government.
