Esben Holmboe Bang (35) is head chef and co-owner of Norway’s ground-breaking three Michelinstarred
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, biodynamic, or wild produce.
"We opened Maaemo to have something that we felt was the right way to let Norwegian nature shine
through on the plate,” explains Esben.
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
In 2012, just 14 months after opening, Maaemo was awarded two Michelin stars in its first ever mention in
the prestigious guide, becoming the first, and only, restaurant in the Nordics to do so. In 2016, Maaemo
was awarded a third Michelin star, making Esben the youngest chef to currently hold Michelin’s highest
accolade and the first ever in Norway to do so. Maaemo was also listed No.79 in the top 100 restaurants
in the world at the 2017 World’s 50 Best Restaurants awards, and No.29 in the top 100 restaurants in the
world by the influential Elite Traveler magazine.
