Big Bengtsson Theory
The Rock arm of the international Iberostarchef On Tour series remained in Scandinavian territory as the Danish Ronny Embory passed the culinary baton to Swede Emma Bengtsson, both Michelin-star peers and New York City residents. Pastry chef-cum-executive chef Bengtsson, who earned a second Michelin-star — two stars translate to “excellent cooking, worth a detour or table excellente, mÃ©rite un dÃ©tour” — for her employer, the Aquavit restaurant, back in 2015, showcased her double-threat talent last Saturday at the Iberostar Grand Hotel in Rose Hall. Thursday Life unfurls the napkin for a taste of Nordic influence.
