Sven Elverfeld, chef de cuisine at Restaurant AQUA in the hotel Ritz-Carlton in Wolfsburg, is one of the finest chefs in Germany. A native of Hesse, he is known for his quite unique style of cooking in which he creatively combines traditional fare with haute cuisine, served up on porcelain including FÜRSTENBERG’s own.
After training as a confectioner and serving an apprenticeship as a chef, Sven Elverfeld travelled the culinary world – from Germany to Dubai, with stints in Greece and Japan. He arrived in Wolfsburg in 2000 and, with his team at AQUA, cooked up three stars in the Michelin Guide and 19.5 points in the Gault Millau Guide.
