Daniel Humm

Daniel Humm is an author, speaker, and the chef and owner of Make It Nice, the New York-based hospitality group behind the highly acclaimed Eleven Madison Park.

A native of Switzerland, Chef Humm earned his first Michelin star at the age of 24. He is consistently listed as one of the world’s best chefs, with both he and Eleven Madison Park receiving numerous accolades: including four stars from The New York Times, seven James Beard Foundation Awards (including Outstanding Chef and Outstanding Restaurant in America), and three Michelin stars for over 10 years in a row, since 2011. 

In 2021, he made the radical decision to re-open Eleven Madison Park with a fully plant-based menu. This move sent shockwaves through the fine dining industry and has set Chef Humm and EMP on a world-changing trajectory — becoming the first plant-based restaurant in history to receive and retain three Michelin Stars.

Chef Humm is the author of Eleven Madison Park: The Cookbook, I Love New York: Ingredients and Recipes, The NoMad Cookbook, and Eleven Madison Park: The Next Chapter, and Eat More Plants, published by Steidl. 

He resides in New York and is a lifelong patron of the arts, supporting local and established artists through collaborations for Eleven Madison Park and other initiatives.
