These food-focused events will see the world’s top chefs converging in Belgium.
Antwerp is the second largest city in Belgium after Brussels and is known for its design, art and architecture, fashion, jewellery as well as its food.
Food lovers, it’s time to brush up on your Flemish. The annual gastronomic fiesta of events that is The World’s 50 Best Restaurants will be hosted in Flanders in 2020, culminating in the famous awards ceremony in the fine city of Antwerp.
