Culinary career

Daniel Humm (born 1976 in Strengelbach)[1] is a Swiss chef and restaurant owner; he is chef/co-owner of Eleven Madison Park and The NoMad in New York City, the former a recipient of three Michelin stars.[2] His cuisine is focused on the locally sourced ingredients of New York, with an emphasis on simplicity, purity, and seasonal flavors. A native of Switzerland, he was exposed to a range of food at a very young age, and began working in kitchens at the age of 14. From there he spent time in some of the finest Swiss hotels and restaurants before earning his first Michelin star at the age of 24. In 2003, Daniel moved to the United States to become the executive chef at Campton Place in San Francisco[3] where he received four stars from the San Francisco Chronicle. Three years later, he moved to New York to become the executive chef at Eleven Madison Park. In 2017, Eleven Madison Park became number 1 on the San Pellegrino World's 50 Best Restaurants.

Over the course of Daniel’s tenure, he and Eleven Madison Park have received numerous accolades, including four stars from The New York Times, six James Beard Foundation Awards (including Outstanding Chef and Outstanding Restaurant in America), three stars from the Michelin Guide, and a top spot on the San Pellegrino list of The World's 50 Best Restaurants. In 2011, Daniel and partner Will Guidara purchased Eleven Madison Park from Danny Meyer's Union Square Hospitality Group, and the following year also opened the critically acclaimed NoMad. Since its opening, The NoMad has garnered three stars from The New York Times, one Michelin Star, and a James Beard Foundation Award.
