"Groenten & fruit zijn een zegen voor je lichaam, maar ook de beste oplossing om de wereld te kunnen voeden op de meest duurzame wijze."
Food is much more than just sustenance. Cooking means taking responsibility for and respecting our resources, our regional economies, the diversity of nature and other cultures and all the people who share this vision. Looking at food holistically can change a lot. Our eating habits affect the economy, the environment our social lives and our health. My desire as a chef is not only to delight my guests with my cooking, I also want to connect them with nature.

What's more fun than composing its menu based on tasty seasonal vegetables? You choose vegetables first and then only the ingredients that will enhance them. It can be meat, poultry, fish or other vegetables.
As culinary professionals, it is our privilege and duty to calibrate our community to the rhythm of the seasons. The rewards are numerous; health and joyful pleasure among them.
I consider Italy the country of vegetables, which are fundamentals in my kitchen and in the kitchen in general nowadays. At the beginning of my carreer when I thought about the creation of a new dish, first I thought about the proteic element and after the pairing with vegetable. Now it's the opposite, I first think about vegetable and then I pair the vegetable with the proteic element. Thanks to this, my menus are more harmonious. W kitchen, W vegetables!
Vegetables are the basis of our Belgian cuisine. Belgians are vegetable eaters, just look at all the small private vegetable gardens! Vegetables are for us, chefs, a source of inspiration for creative and seasonal cooking. They are also super antioxidants.
I grow vegetables and herbs by myself in my own fields around my restaurant. I can get many variety of them throughout the year. Seasonal vegetables are so delicious and have a lot of power. For me, harvesting is an inspiration of new dishes.
Picking up vegetables and herbs picked up in our kitchen garden in the morning before dawn gives me such a special feeling! A boost passion that motivates me to create fresh, distinctive dishes. Let's not forget that the real gastronomy germinates on the field!
Unique, Belgian and a top product: those are the hop shoots! Every year I look forward to cooking with it. Hopefully we can do that for years.
