What truly gives you meaning and purpose? Eleven Madison Park (NYC) Chef and Owner Daniel Humm discusses how the pandemic has given him new purpose and his advice to other luxury brands. “If we want to continue the way we’ve done things, I believe 5 years from now, 10 years or maybe already next year, it will be irrelevant and empty,” he says. During COVID, Humm 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.
