Flanders is a true culinary adventure. Whether in large contemporary restaurants, or intimate old-fashioned cafes, one may find sophisticated and surprising compositions. Flanders boasts more than 70 Michelin-starred restaurants which is a higher per capita ratio than France.
Dennis Broeckx put Antwerp’s L’epicerie du Cirque on the culinary map, earning this restaurant its Michelin star in 2014. His trademark is surprising combinations and remarkable flavours with seasonal produce taking center stage. For the last few years, he has been using vegetables, especially turnips, and herbs to create pure, balanced and fresh dishes. Attention to flavours, aromas and refined textures make for an unforgettable dining experience. Dennis is part of the “Flanders Kitchen Rebels”, a programme organised by the Flanders Tourism Agency to promote top chefs under the age of 35 who are on the verge of an international breakthrough. The Kitchen Rebels are masters of their craft, and share a great passion for Flemish gastronomy and pure products. Innovation, creation and a dash of rock ‘n’ roll are the top ingredients in these chefs’ kitchens.
The flight is sponsored, through the BCCSA, by Etihad Airways.
