Flanders abounds with fine food and delicious, fresh meals are part of our cultural identity. Our unique local ingredients like Brussels sprouts, asparagus and grey shrimp make every visit a culinary journey. What better testing ground could there be for the Flanders Kitchen Rebels – a selection of 51 top chefs under the age of 35, with a great passion for Flemish gastronomy.

These young, talented chefs are mixing things up, focusing on serving local produce in the purist way and sealing Flanders’ place as the destination for lovers of fine food. Although many of the ingredients you’ll find in Flanders can be found elsewhere in the world, our chefs love sourcing produce from their local area, or in some cases from their own gardens. It doesn’t get much fresher than that!

When it comes to the Flanders Kitchen Rebels, innovation and creativity are the top ingredients in these chefs’ kitchens. Powered by their knowledge and skill, many of these culinary artists are true masters in their field, especially since many have been taught at the very best cookery schools in Flanders. This training has sharpened their product knowledge, cooking techniques and discipline.

In March and October, these Flanders Kitchen Rebels treat young diners between 18 and 30 to unforgettable gastronomy at a knock-down price. There’s a new generation of foodies in town. So, we dare you. Have a bite. Fall in love.

Living well is a way of life for us, where pride, hospitality and conviviality come together
