Vlaanderen lekkerland has outdone itself again to find 39 top chefs to participate in the 2012 edition of ‘Jong Keukengeweld’ (I leave it in Dutch as in English it just sounds cruel: ‘Young Kitchen violence’).
For you that are not familiar with the concept of ‘Jong Keukengeweld’, I’ll explain it briefly. Jong Keuken geweld is basically Young talented Chefs who cook for Young people both under 30 for a modest price of 45EUR. For this price you get 3 course dinner (fix menu) including beverages (wine, water, beer). The participating restaurants are located all over the Flanders, you can find the list of chefs on the following link
It is all about making choices, difficult choices! That is if you don’t want to do all of them :-). There are already 2 restaurants in Antwerp that I can say for a fact that are must do’s if you have the chance, restaurant épicerie du cirque in the center of Antwerp and restaurant Veranda in Berchem (just outside of Antwerp). But of course all of the restaurants on the list are good, up to you to try them!?
The 2012 edition runs from October 1st until November 15th, per chef/restaurant it is indicated you can book a table and the days the menu is available.
FYI, there is also a daily Facebook contest where you can win a dinner at one of the restaurants… (so check their fb-page)
