The winners Gert De Mangeleer.
A jury of professionals nominated eight candidates. The title goes to someone from the Belgian gastronomy who carried out pioneering work in the past year or who made a special contribution to the culinary sector.
In the photo on the right with towel is Gert De Mangeleer with his team
Gert and Joachim went from none to 3 stars in a span of barely seven years with Hertog Jan. Gert is one of the 3 youngest three-star chefs in the world', according to organizer Horeca Expo. Joachim, partner and room director, was Belgium's First Sommelier in 2004 and was named Sommelier of the Year in 2011 by a large margin. The bosom friends are working together on a new project around their farm with their own vision of ecology and their own vegetable cultivation.

I hope you like it
