Flanders seducing with food and gastronomy

25.08.2017 - Editorial board
These last couple of days a delegation of international food journalists and gastronomy bloggers have been exploring the good life in Flanders. Together with top chef Gert De Mangeleer, 19/20 Gault&Millau and 3* Michelin, Visit Flanders organised a finger licking tour in and around Bruges. 
 
The aim : attracting tourists with a passion for food to come and spend some real quality time in our country.
 
On the program : "Café Vlissinghe", the oldest pub (1515) in Bruges, restaurant "Rock Fort", restaurant "The Siphon", the place to go to enjoy fresh eel, a visit to the butcher shops of living legend "Hendrik Dierendonck", a tasting with the masters of cheese riping and aging "Van Tricht", an experimental experience with the chocolate child of the gods "Dominique Persoone".

The Japanese chefs travelling along were very impressed by the approach and passion of the North Sea Chefs whose aim is to promote local, seasonal bycatch fish founded by Filip Claeys, Gault&Millau's chef of the year 2015.
 
Restaurant Boury, cheese farm 'T Groendal, brewery Halve Maan, beer bar 'T Brugs Beertje, brewery De Dolle Brouwers, Julia's Fish and Oyster restaurant and Hubert Gastrobar completed the program. 
 
The company finished in extreme beauty with a superb 6-hands dinner by chefs Gert De Mangeleer, Hiroyasu Kawate and Zaiyu Hasegawa.

The time is now to invest in hotel accommodation.
