‘By far my favourite vegetable is the asparagus. I am always happy when the asparagus season kicks off, as it also means that a lot of other young spring vegetables will soon be available.’

Kortrijkse bil
‘My favourite regional product? Kortrijkse bil, a delicious piece of salted veal.’

‘After our work is finished we regularly head to Bar des Amis on the Grote Markt with our team. Some serious partying has taken place in that pub…’

Kobe Desramaults
‘I started at Kobe’s restaurant ten years ago. I had just left school, but Kobe believed in me straight away. He shaped me into what I am today. The team at In De Wulf felt just like family.’
