Nature Chic is the name of a new concept created during the COVID-19 pandemic. Four people have joined forces to create a culinary experience in the middle of nature.
John Paquot, the proprietor of the Ferme d’Odenge, Alain Bianchin, chef of Michelin star restaurant Alain Blainchin and Andre Poes, a sommelier and owner of Nectars du Sommelier and Mickael Williquet have joined forces to create this experience where nature takes centre stage and forms the dining room.
During the summer months in Orbais, in the Brabant Wallon region of Belgium, Nature Chic will welcome guests next to a river in the heart of the Belgian countryside. The ‘dining room’ is open from Thursday to Sunday
Under the trees, guests are welcome from 7pm for an aperitif in the middle of the vegetable garden. Champagne and seasonal cocktails are served together with the latest creations prepared from the vegetable garden by the team at Brigitin.
At around 8pm, guests will be taken to their table for dinner at Nature Chic. They will be served a four-course menu created by Alain Bianchin of the eponymous restaurant in Overijse on the outskirts of Brussels. Wines have been selected by Andre Poes, a renowned sommelier who has been voted the best sommelier in Belgium many times.
To finish off the dinner, coffee, tea and refreshments will be served from Atelier Brigitin. There is also a bar that serves digestives and other discoveries open until midnight.
