‘A beautiful piece of veal with a rim of fat for additional flavour. I think that is really wonderful!’

Last supper
‘A beautiful West Flemish entrecôte, rare, with Béarnaise sauce and chips [fries], lettuce, onion, and a touch of mayonnaise. Heavenly.’

The essence
‘Even with access to the most expensive equipment, I always have a paring knife and a biro to hand in my kitchen.’
