Julie Baekelandt’s regional secrets
‘In winter I particularly like working with soil-grown Belgian endives [witloof/chicon]. Very Belgian and perfect for unleashing your creativity.’
‘Our carpaccio of matured beef with rucola [rocket], truffle vinaigrette, and Parmesan snow is our pride and joy!’
‘In the three years I spent working for Wout, he taught me the essence of flavour. He became my role model!’ www.brasseriebru.be
‘Personally, when I go to a restaurant, I like to go to Bartholomeus. But of course no one can match my grandmother’s cooking!’
