A number of international chefs are expected to take part in the Foodfest though these have not yet been announced.
They will also feature in lunches and dinners at the two Michelin starred Pure C and the one Michelin starred Air Republic on Sunday and Monday.
Last year, Syrco and Sergio decided to invite a selection of former colleagues who worked with them at Sergio’s restaurant Oud Sluis in Zeeland. They call them the ‘heroes of Oud Sluis’. Most of the chefs worked in some great restaurants in the Netherlands, Belgium and even further afield such as New York and Singapore among others.
