Red Shiso – “when East meets West”

Pascal Devalkeneer, as of the start of his vegetable garden in 2015, has shown a keen interest in Shiso, also known as Japanese basil. Each year, in May, he sows Red Shiso, a recognized aromatic and medicinal plant. The plant seems particularly pleased in the plots of the Brussel’s garden but it is especially in the kitchen that the Shiso shines! Its flavor can be described as an association of cinnamon, pepper, anise, mint or even basil and lemon balm. The Chalet makes you discover its pleasant fragrance with, in particular, the marshmallow with Shiso served in mignardise or the wild sea bream, sauce Sofrito with Shiso.
As a bonus, Shiso is credited with therapeutic virtues against stress, anxiety and many allergies, even better thus!

Le Chalet, Relais & Châteaux since 2012

Established in 1954, Relais & Châteaux is an association of more than 540 landmark hotels and restaurants operated by independent innkeepers, chefs, and owners who share a passion for their businesses and a desire for authenticity in their relationships with their clientele.

Relais & Châteaux is established around the globe, from the Napa Valley vineyards and French Provence to the beaches of the Indian Ocean. It offers an introduction to a lifestyle inspired by local culture and a unique dip into human history.

Relais & Châteaux members have a driving desire to protect and promote the richness and diversity of the world’s cuisine and traditions of hospitality. They are committed to preserving local heritage and the environment, as encompassed in the Charter presented to UNESCO in November 2014.

Le Chalet de la Forêt is therefore very proud to be one of the few belgian representatives of Relais & Châteaux, this since 2012.


A good sommelier is of huge importance in a restaurant.

Through the symbiosis of food and drink, a good sommelier makes sure every visit is unforgettable.

At le Chalet de la Forêt it is César Román, a well-known Spanish sommelier, who ensures food and wine are paired harmoniously!

ROMAN CAESAR, a young (32 year old) virtuoso blessed with an unusual knowledge of wine and a remarkable passion for his job, is unquestionably one of those sommeliers who contributes to making a restaurant a “Grande Maison”.

Once more Pascal Devalkeneer continues to polish his little jewel and proves that each element counts at le Chalet. All this has elevated this outstanding restaurant, whose guests return time and time again, to the gastronomic stratosphere of the capital.

From inspiration to plate

Kris Vlegels captured the creative process of the Chef …

That day, the garden herbs inspired him two dishes. The bear leek and Chénopode came up a plate of snails and frogs’ legs and spell risotto while the Burnet and young cauliflower bewitched a cod with speculoos.
