A basket of bread rolls on the table always adds a touch of atmosphere when dining at a restaurant. Do you want to offer your customers homemade bread? Guest blogger Marc Thoonen reveals his secret.
One of the most fiery interviews in the new Debic e-zine for the catering industry was with the Basque chef Victor Arguinzoniz from Asador Etxebarri. In this case, you can take the word 'fire' literally; he is a magician with heat and smoke, and he uses his own self-designed grills. His business fits in perfectly with the Basque tradition of villagers meeting up around the grill after work. What inspiration can you take from a region that is simultaneously home to so many Michelin stars and has a strong tradition of simple, delicious food? Find out here.
The fact that the Dutch national team didn’t qualify for Euro 2016 is hard to stomach for many Dutch people. So, specially for them, I have made one of the classics from the Dutch snack bar; a sandwich or friet 'kapsalon'. Because, let’s be honest: at times, the Dutch dressing room looked a lot like a hairdressing salon. There was a lot of talk and hype, but on the pitch the performances left a lot to be desired.
Bitterballen, the perfect snack to serve during a football tournament in Belgium and the Netherlands. And the classic among classics in snack bars and friteries. So why look any further during the forthcoming Euro 2016 tournament? To give them a special Euro 2016 touch, we are serving our bitterballen on a football cut in half and covered with chicken wire. And you thought we couldn't do anything exciting with bitterballen?

The Euro 2016 will soon be upon us, and with it the usual football madness. To be frank, I'm not that into it... The atmosphere and fun that accompanies the Red Devils' matches is something I do find fantastic. It inspired me to create a dessert that I'm dedicating to all the football wives who love to spoil their football-loving husbands.

As a Dutchman, for obvious reasons I don't want to think too much about the upcoming European Championship in France. A finale in a Stade de France bedecked in orange is unfortunately not in the cards. So the next best thing is the Red Devils. I sincerely hope to see them in the finals. To prove it, I created this cake version of the Stade de France, including the Red Devils.
