A big thank you to each of them! CHEF side: Stéphanie THUNUS Stéphanie learned the basics of cooking at the Namur hotel school. She started her career at the Maison du Cygne, where she met Sébastien. She then expanded her knowledge behind the stoves of Evan's Herb Grill in Wemmel. She likes to work with quality products and is guided by them to develop her menu. Au Gré du Vent" is the culmination of a common dream of the young couple: to open their restaurant to share their passion for gastronomy. The restaurant was built on an old barn owned by Stephanie's family. Only the small chapel to the right of the entrance still bears witness to this past. Stéphanie comes from a family of farmers whose farm is located opposite the restaurant. LadY Chef 2014 - Michelin-starred 2014 - Grand de demain/ 16/20 gault millau 2014 David BAERT Pastry, a passion that David Baert has made his profession. His story is that of a passionate man guided by happy encounters, a hard worker, driven by an irrepressible desire to please. David is the pastry chef of Hof van Cleve, the 3 Michelin star restaurant in Belgium, where he shapes bread, confectionery and pastry in all the splendor of homemade bread on a daily basis. A true gourmand, always looking for new flavors and new combinations, always with an incredible respect for the ingredient. Roland DEBUYST It is in Nossegem, in the suburbs of Brussels, that you have to go to meet Roland Debuyst, he in the kitchen, and Ayse in the dining room. After training at the Ceria and starting his career in places such as the renowned Radisson SAS Brussels, Sofitel and the Sheraton Airport hotel, Roland Debuyst opened, in 1993, his own restaurant, "L'Orangeraie", a perfume of the South... In the kitchen, he focuses on working with textures thanks to which he likes to surprise the taste buds of his visitors. He loves competition and, with the first prize Prosper-Montagné in 1995, he marks a first step towards the Bocuse d'argent of 1997. Other distinctions enrich his list of achievements, including 1 Gault and Millau star in 2002. Mai 2005 marks a turning point. Roland decides to close his classic gourmet restaurant to launch Orange Food Fashion, a trendy establishment... Then he followed with the opening of the Mariadal brewery in Zaventem, which the Michelin Guide awarded a Bib gourmand in 2009. In December 2015, a new challenge: he started the adventure of BeBurger restaurants, of which he is the co-founder, a restaurant dedicated to quality burgers! In May 2017 followed the creation of Alfons Burger. At the same time, he works as a consultant in the kitchens of the European Parliament. In October 2017, he completely redesigned Orange Food Fashion, which became Bistro R. SOMMELIER side: Alfred Cointreau, President of the Jury Alfred Cointreau is part of the sixth generation of the Cointreau family and was born and raised in Angers, France. This alone would make him the ideal candidate for Heritage Manager of Maison Cointreau. But the thirty-something doesn’t rest on the laurels of his last name. His personality was molded by his family history, his meaningful personal encounters, fed by an insatiable curiosity and an unrelenting passion for cocktail culture. Originally not destined to be in the family business, Alfred remembers his grandfather, a faux retiree, continuing to frequent the distillery daily. He had an inimitable passion for his craft, which he passed on to his grandson. In addition to being a father of two spirited little girls, Louison and Suzanne, Alfred serves as Heritage Manager for the family business and is responsible for keeping up the culture of Maison Cointreau. After trying his hand at various distillery roles, from unloading bags of orange zest to bottling to the art of distillation, Alfred decided he preferred being out in the world. A man of many talents (except sitting behind a desk), Alfred spends his time moving around, meeting people, and exploring bars. As long as he hears the clinking of ice cubes, he feels at home. Wherever he may be in the world, he always finds time to slide up to a bar, keeping his illustrious origins to himself, and give the bartender carte blanche. Champion of the orange label, Alfred Cointreau embodies the sensitivity and tranquil lifestyle typical of Angers, and is proud to share them with the rest of the world. Charlie GUILLIAMS Charlie Guilliams is the owner of Alfonse, a company founded in 2016 focused on cocktails and hospitality. Antique dealer by training and passionate about art, she met her husband after a trip in 2013 and very quickly, they developed together their first mobile bar service. In 2018, they opened Botanical by Alfonse, a craft cocktail bar in Namur, and recently Liquorette by Alfonse, a dining bar located in the same city. Spontaneous and literary, she naturally took charge of the company's communication, on the networks where she shares daily the creations of the bars and her passion. Hannes DESMEDT I am a creative mind and passionate about flavors. I started my career as a young sommelier in great restaurants (Hertog Jan, Michelin*** - Hof van Cleve, Michelin***) and I quickly fell in love with the art of bartending. I continued to learn the trade focusing mainly on flavor and food combinations. I created my own company Wine Blend in 2017 where I gather all this expertise and share it with the next generation of entrepreneurs. In June 2021, I published my first cocktail book "Apéro Maison": an expert but understandable explanation of the preparation of more than 60 recipes, classified into casual cocktails, festive cocktails, gourmet cocktails, no-low & craft.

"As an epicurean, it is quite natural that I turn to catering to flourish in my professional life. I'm not just passionate about cooking. The world of gastronomy interests me in the broadest sense: the service, the atmosphere, the welcome and the pleasure of the table completely define who I am.” Corentin explains. SOMMELIER side: Anouck FRANSOLET is sommelier and also manager of the Comptoir de l'eau vive since 2018. Her atypical profile is multidisciplinary: everything begins with the Provincial Hotel School of Namur, then in Metz, she obtains a complementary mention sommellerie, a certificate in coffeeology and bierology, then in Bordeaux, a university diploma of aptitude for tasting, finally a nose training in perfumery with Alexandre Schmit.

11/15/2022 On the CHEF side: Yorre Adrianenssens trained as a cook at the Ter Duinen Hotel School in Kokside. During his studies, he completed an internship at the restaurant Cent pour cent (1 Michelin star), which he joined immediately after his training. He has worked at the Casello restaurant for the last four years, evolving from kitchen clerk to restaurant chef. It has also received a score of 13/20 from the Gault & Millau guide and is listed in the Michelin guide. He’s a young, motivated and addicted to good coffee! On the sommelier side: Koen Van der Cammen "Active in the sector for more than 15 years and passionate about wines, I am very happy to practice my job as a sommelier on a daily basis. Ensuring a great customer experience and appreciation is a great motivator and inspires and motivates me every day. No two days are alike, which offers a nice variety."
11/14/2022 On the CHEF side: As there is no boat without a captain, there is no Domaine Vertes-Feuilles (in St-Sauveur) without its Chef, Pascal Martens, who selects every day the most beautiful products to give this place a little something extra, its authenticity. If he had only one motto, it would be "Good, clean and fair", three words that characterize his cuisine. Trained at the Ter Duinen hotel school in Koksijde and graduate in hotel management, it isn’t in the papers that we find him, but behind his piano, or his stoves if you prefer, talking about ingredients. But what will he ask of them? Above all, he wants to know their origin, their history and the flavors behind the richness of the perfumes they release. If there was only one success to mention on Pascal Martens' record, it would be his position as sous-chef at the Château du Mylord in Ellezelles. This 2 Michelin star is not the only establishment to its credit. He worked in no less than 12 restaurants from 1993 to 2009. In 2007, he was named by the King "Laureate of Labour, Tourism Section". In 2015, he won the "Let's Cook Cobia" competition, organized by Gault & Millau. A guide in which the restaurant has been listed since 2018. But let's focus on the most important thing about his cooking: the values he defends. Close to the products of nature and small producers, he also grows his own vegetables, fruits and aromatic plants. The breakfast offered at the estate is composed of homemade and local products. No question of simply ordering a basket of organic vegetables, quality products are the result of constant research and meetings with their producers. On the bartender side: Born in Charleroi on August 13, 1989, Thomas Beifnot has been a bartender since 2013. First waiter in an Irish cocktail bar, he replaces the bartender at the departure of the latter. A trade that quickly becomes a passion, more than a job. Trained on the job, but also with professionals, he gained experience in a brasserie in Louvain-la-Neuve before joining the world of hospitality as a head bartender in a new establishment in Charleroi. It is in the famous Alice Cocktail Bar in Brussels that he refines his techniques by working for a year, one evening a week. Since February 2020, Thomas Beifnot has been head bartender at the prestigious Petrus Bar, within the recently renovated Hotel Nivelles-Sud Van der Valk.

10/19/2021 - “I began doing Pastry since I was a kid, because my mum is a Pastry Chef and my father is a Bakery Chef. I often went to help them in their store. After that, I worked in several stores in various cities, as Changsha and Shanghai. In 2018, I decided to go to Xiamen to help a friend to open her bakery-pastry, Douce France. In summer 2021, TDessert, the international school based in Beijing, opened a second school in Xiamen. I accepted a post as professor and since then, I’ve been teaching pastry, chocolate-making and bakery. In parallel I’m consultant for a few stores and great brands as Cointreau. My greatest dream would be to open my own laboratory or shop! While the French pastry is always my favourite field, I am also passionate about the chocolate-making, bakery and more recently, ice-cream. The Rémy Cointreau Gastronomie spirits range offers me a larger palette of flavours that sublimate my creations. It’s an honour and a great pleasure for me to become Rémy Cointreau Gastronomy Ambassador!”
