The Brains Behind It

Experimental Practitioners

After meeting as colleagues at the world famous restaurant NOMA, Mark Emil - an anthropology grad from Oxford and Lars - a long-time chef came together, united by their ideas around food and flavour. They created Empirical to push their ideas beyond the kitchen and make them accessible across the world. They combine an experimental approach with years of practical experience to create unique flavours that incorporate a wide variety of ingredients and techniques.
