Ever dined in a 25 star restaurant? No? Well, neither have I, but if you're free on the 5th of July 2015, you can! A grand total of 40 chefs, together good for 25 Michelin stars and no less then 20 bartenders from the top 50 best bars in the world will gather at Oostduinkerke Beach in Belgium and seduce you with what is probably the most sensual food & booze orgy on the globe.
It says Flemish Food Bash, but it’s not only Flander’s finest you will meet. Actually it’s quite the international crowd. An impressive global line up which turns this event in a must visit for anybody who can chew. Apart from star chefs and top bartenders, there’s also baristas, butchers, bakers and beers galore to fulfil every “burgundian” fantasy you’ve ever had.
Let’s have a look at the bartenders:
The Pharmacy, Belgium
Marian Beke from The Nightjar, UK
Erik Lorincz from The Savoy, UK
Steve Okhuysen, Old Fashioned, Belgium
Sofie Ketels, Belgium
Didier Van den Broeck, Dogma, Belgium
Maxim Kilian, The Parlour, Germany
Roman Milostivy, Chainaya, Russia
Paul Morel, Belgium
Rémy Savage, Little Red Door, France
Gegam Kazarian, Kazaris Project, Spain
Steve Schneider, Employees Only, USA
Jurgen Nobels, Belgium (winner of Diageo World Class Belgium 2015)
Laura Schacht, Hiding In Plain Sight, Netherlands
Zoltan Nagy, Boutiq’Bar, Hungary
Gobo Hansen, Ruby, Denmark
Julia Momose, Green River, USA
Massimo Stronati, The Doping Club, Italy
Matthew Bax, Trink Tank, Austria
Check out that list, quite impressive isn’t it! And if you don’t know them then come down and meet them, because you should (especially if you’re into cocktails).
Prices for the food or a cocktail are ridiculously low, because the whole thing is a not for profit event. The value for them is to watch and learn from each other…and a killer party of course.
Well, you know where I will be on the 5th 😉
P.S. There’s also barbers, hairstylists, tattoo artists, cheese aficionados, patissiers and street artists, … Chances are very high people won’t recognise you anymore after ‘the bash’.
