The place

With its location in metropolitain Brussels, the Chalet de la Forêt is flourishing by bringing together tradition and avant-garde elements in perfect harmony.

The beauty of the location with the town’s comings and goings as a backdrop, the mastery of time with the seasons going by in the vegetable garden and the generous cuisine courtesy of the remarkable talent that is Pascal Devalkeneer combine to make this a place of excellence (awarded two stars by the Michelin guide), a major venue that is respected and where people like to come and come back to.

Every day at midday, the wood is lit in the kitchen. Every day, bread is cooked here. Market gardening, grilling, salting and smoking is all done on the spot.

Bringing together all the food-related professions is about creating a perfect combination that gives the chef the freedom to focus on technique, on the cooking process, on new flavours and on the extraordinary biodiversity offered by the garden’s plantations.

It’s not a question of being trendy, it’s a question of taste.

– Pascal Devalkeneer
