Emma Bengtsson, known as an innovative, mentor chef, has vibrantly taken hold of New York diners with elegant Nordic dishes that push the boundaries of simple flavors
and favorite dishes of the region. Under her tutelage, the restaurant Aquavit in NYC was awarded two Michelin stars within the same year of her promotion to Executive Chef. This award made her the first Swedish woman to continuously hold two Michelin stars, an honor she carries to this day. Most recently granted the Mentor Chef Award by Michelin in 2023, Emma is currently James Beard Award-nominated for Outstanding Chef in 2024.
