Chef Daniel Humm of Eleven Madison Park in New York City rocked the culinary world when he announced his three-star Michelin restaurant would reopen with a meat-free menu. In this very special episode of Add Passion and Stir, Chef Humm says, “My hope is that we can show that we can create these magical moments that are luxurious and delicious without using meat.” Explaining his motivation, Humm noted our current food system is not sustainable. “This is not an anti-meat move. This is more a pro-planet move,” he explains. The shutdown of Eleven Madison Park during the pandemic gave Humm time for reflection and reevaluation of his priorities. We will also revisit an earlier conversation with Humm during the height of the pandemic, when he transformed Eleven Madison Park into a food provider of 5,000 meals a day in partnership with Rethink Food NYC. “The recipe I want to really share with the world is the recipe of doing what we’re doing, but also feeding the people in need, under one roof,” he says.
