Although most Europeans are very familiar with barbecues, the contests held both in individual countries and at the European level are a recent phenomenon. The growing popularity of barbecuing has recently also extended into professional kitchens, indicating that this is no longer just a passing trend. Barbecues or wood-fired ovens have become a fixture in restaurant kitchens and chefs roast meat and fish just like their Palaeolithic forebears did centuries ago, but with modern-day precision.

When you travel through Sicily, you can feel the island's rich history. You also taste it in its eclectic cuisine, which features Greek, Roman, Arab, Norman and Moorish influences blended with the characteristic simplicity of Italian cuisine. Basics include homemade pasta, fresh sardines, fresh fruit, ripe cheeses and olive oil. The saying ‘What grows together comes together’ perfectly encapsulates Sicilian cuisine. The climate and nutrient-rich soil provide ingredients of exceptional quality.
Tom van Meulebrouck's journey through Sicily and his encounters with its people inspired him to create a respectful but modern interpretation of the traditional Sicilian dish Bucatini con le Sarde.

In this section we'll regularly catch up with inspiring colleagues so we can post their latest creations on our blog and have them share their technique and philosophy with us. Wouter Hanssens from De Pinte in Ghent and his wife Virginie started a delightful business in a historic building that's less than a 10-minute drive from Ghent. With over 10 years of experience, he has developed his own distinctive style: classic dishes with a twist! This exotic fruit cake is a perfect example of how to make a "2013 version" of a classic cake. The recipe is featured in the Debic Magazine Bakkerij, Spring 2013 issue.
This dessert is tribute to "The King" Elvis Presley. We created a new concept based on his favourite snack, a sandwich with peanut butter, banana and bacon. With this dish we are deliberately pushing the boundaries in terms of flavour profile. A flavour combination that is scary at first. This is extremely unusual. But what was the real challenge? The challenge was in finding the right combination of savoury ingredients in a sweet application. Chocolate formed the bridge...
The ‘white gold’ is at the height of its season once again and remains a true delicacy. Ask your local asparagus seller or greengrocer for asparagus with creamy white stems grown in cold ground. In this special recipe, cultivated herbs are combined with wild herbs that we found during a walk with herbologist Frank Radder. A silicon mould is made of the unpeeled asparagus, into which asparagus mousse is poured. Pouring the hot bouillon over the dish causes the mousse to melt, creating a traditional asparagus velouté. A classic with a twist!
Recently, a special product was introduced that can be used to design your own silicone moulds for gourmet dishes. Now, you too can be an artist in the kitchen and create your own culinary mould for creams, mousses, ice cream, jelly or chocolate, in a snap. That's how it works.
At the last Coupe du Monde, the Singapore team poured a homemade, neutral and transparent glaze over their Frozen Fruit Entremet, creating a thin, glistening layer with a subtle flavour. It’s a basic recipe which from now on will be featured in our extensive cookbook of the most sought after and popular recipes. The technique is simple and can be adapted to serve as a base in other recipes by adding some aroma compound or food colouring.
