He has introduced ‘The Sensory Kitchen’, a cooking style where the dinning guest must use both eyes, ears, nose and taste during the meal, not to mention the camera when guests are trying to capture the true essence of perfection on a plate.
Emborg was selected by Atera owner Jodi Richard from three high profiled candidates, all of whom cooked a dinner for her in her home here in NYC.
Each new dish has you grasping for the right taxonomy: “It’s modernist!”, “it’s techno-emotional!”, “it’s neomolecularsensorynordic!” “it’s… it’s”. But it doesn’t need some lazy shorthand description; it just needs to be tasted.
Michelin starred Chef Ronny Emborg was invited to Moscow by the large Russian restaurant group Maison Dellos, where for a couple of days, he showcased his cooking at press lunches, VIP dinners and gala dinners.

Actually, the strong focus was what impressed me the most. These dishes had clearly been worked on and sharpened until they had reached an incredible high level of perfection.”
