The Ordinary and Trivial, Simple and Refined

Seyine Park

World-class restaurant Aqua is certainly located in the most unusual of places – inside the Ritz Carlton hotel standing within Volkswagen Autostadt, the automobile company’s 70 acre theme park. Nevertheless, Aqua defies all expectations and finds success in the ordinary town of Wolfsburg, Germany. Chef de cuisine of this 3-Michelin starred gem, Sven Elverfeld, redefines modern German cuisine as he transforms the seemingly “ordinary and trivial” and elevates the simple and refined.

Chef Sven is particularly noted for his unique approach towards and reinvention of German peasant food – simple and ordinary. By treating such dishes and ingredients with the utmost respect, the German chef calls special attention to the country’s often overlooked dishes.
