Chef

Esben Holmboe Bang

Feb. 19 - Mar. 1, 2021 | Soneva Fushi

Esben Holmboe Bang (36) is head chef and co-owner of Norway’s ground-breaking three Michelin-starred Restaurant Maaemo. He was born and raised in Copenhagen, but has spent most of his culinary career in Oslo.

The Norwegian terroir is a relatively unknown treasure of the international culinary world, but it is something that Esben is passionate about exploring. Esben’s cuisine is focused on creating an experience around the clean, bright flavours of Norway, using entirely organic, bio dynamic, or wild produce.

It’ s a bold style of cooking that has won the young chef a legion of fans and a listing as one of Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential Chefs in the World and Elite Traveler Magazine’s ‘2016 Young Chef of the Year.’
