Tomorrowland aka foodie heaven

Tomorrowland logo

I am pretty jealous of the people who went to Tomorrowland, not really for the music as I could hear that in my livingroom due to the wind direction and also I’m not really too much into the music they play… or at least not for 3 days in a row. I’m more jealous about the great selection of eateries they had!! Really!! They have really outdone themselves.

Did you know they even had a food inspector from the “Gault & Millau” guide quote every food stand and give it points? Of course there was a lot to give points to like the food stands in the International Street where you could taste Mexican, American, Greek, French, Spanish and (obviously) Belgian food. Or the fresh bakery shop… They also didn’t forget the vegetarians in cooperation with Lombardia.

A reason I almost bought a ticket was the amount of top gastronomy present restaurant Wout Bru (Maison Bru *), Roger Van Damme (Het Gebaar *), Manuel Wouter (SIPS cocktail bar)

Cocktails

The people who I envied the most were the people who got a spot at the secret restaurant!! First of all because having a dinner prepared by two 3 Michelin star awarded chefs Sergio Herman (Oud Sluis) and Jordi Roca (El Celler de Can Roca) and one of the few Michelin awarded “chocolatiers” Dominique Persoone (The Chocolate Line) and secondly to be in the company of yet another 3 Michelin star awarded chef Peter Goossens (Hof Van Cleve)… like food porn for me 🙂  Don’t get me wrong, the hamburgers would have also tasted well, but this is a different level of experience 😉 If only I won or was able to get a place at the secret restaurant…

Maybe next year they should have a special Gastronomical pass that one can try all food @Tomorrowland?

Congrats too the organizational team of Tomorrowland, you really did a hell of a job (also for the non-food part)

Tomorrowland with a Gastonomical touch

Who knew a Festival could get a Gastronomical touch? When I think of a festival, I usually think of hot dogs, hamburgers, French fries… but certainly not of gastronomy

This year Tomorrowland decided to combine dance music with good food. During the 3 days of the festival from 27 to 29 July you’ll be able to enjoy all kinds of gastronomical food, going from a healthy or gluten free snack to a three to Michelin star meal.

Please find below a list of the gastronomical delicacies you’ll be able to enjoy during these 3 days:

Vegetarian and gluten free:

One of THE Belgium’s healthy food ambassadors Alain from the Antwerp veggie Walhalla Lombardia. FYI for the 2009 edition of tomorrowland he made a special ‘Tomorrowland Magic Mushroom’ per request of Moby. For people wanting their gluten free meal, they can already reserve it or request more info via lombardia@tomorrowland.be

Refined dining

Tommorowland also thought of the people wanting something more refined. These people will  REALLY get spoiled.

At the main stage you’ll be finding nobody less than Wout Bru with his team from the Michelin star awarded restaurant Chez Bru (located in South of France). Here you will be able to try a top dish with a nice glass of wine. For Wout, this is not the first visit to the festival, last year he served more than 1000 meals in 3days.

For our friends with a sweet tooth Tomorrowland has asked Master pastry chef Roger van Damme from restaurant ‘Het Gebaar’ (FYI, he has the only Michelin star restaurant in the world that is only open for lunch). He will be in his ‘peperkoekhuisje’ aka the house of cake from the fairy tale Hansel and Grettel , where he’ll be serving a dessert specially created for Tomorrowland

For those who want the TOP OF THE BILL, they can go for the 3 Michelin star 7 course meal at a for the moment still secret location and chef at the festival (my personal guess would be Sergio Herman)  Unfortunately only 8 lucky people will be able to enjoy this meal. What makes it even more special is that you cannot buy the seats for this meal, you can only win them. On top of the gastronomical dinner, you’ll also be getting some FULL MADNESS COMBI (VIP) tickets for the festival. More info on this later.

And as if this was not yet enough, they Tomorrowland has also forsee a Cocktail bar, where Manuel & Olivier Wouters from cocktail bar Sips will be showing the art of making cocktails (and letting everybody drink them aswell of course).

Hope this will make your Tomorrowland experience even more unforgettable! This even makes me want to go 😉

WHAT DOES THIS ALL COST?

A ticket for both restaurants (Wout Bru and Roger van Damme) can be booked via http://www.tomorrowland.be/. Wout Bru will be serving 3 dishes  for 27,5 EUR (includes a glass of wine), Roger Vandamme will be serving his dessert for 17,5 EUR including a glass of dessert wine or a cup of coffee. I’d advise you to be quick, as there limited seats available

Enjoy
