The Belgium Effect
This week on Fine Dining Lovers we started with a report direct from the Culinaria food festival in Belgium.
A showcase of Belgium food, the festival placed some of the best chefs together from across the Belgium as they each cooked up their own dishes for a hungry public.
We explored the festival with a gallery and interviews with many of the chefs cooking there.
As 37 chefs from across the world get ready to swap restaurants and lives for the Grand Gelinaz Shuffle, we spoke with Rene Redzepi and Albert Adria about the idea and exactly how they’re feeling about the swap.
We also told the story of how the shuffle was planned in Italy and explained why everyone is blaming Blaine Wetzel for the idea.
With tickets almost sold out, here’s a look at one of the most exciting food events of the year.
Joan Roca: “Young Chef Must Enjoy Cooking”
Joan Roca is one of the most famous chefs in the world and has a wealth of experience in the kitchen.
Bringing that experience to the S.Pellegrino Young Chef 2015, Roca will act as one of seven judges at the grand final in Milan. We spoke with the chef this week to find out more about his own career and ask for his advice to the young chefs of today. before it’s backers of the project
