BRUSSELS: Glen Ramaekers, chef and a fervent mixologist of Brussels restaurant Chez Pias has created two cocktails for Valentines Day in collaboration with Belgian caviar producer Royal Belgian Caviar.
Royal Belgian caviar is a company that has been producing top quality caviar for the past years serving some of the best restaurants not only in Belgium but also around the world.
Over the past months, the ‘black gold’ company has been seen as a way of supporting the local economy. ” Using or serving Belgian caviar is a way of making a declaration. You are not only supporting the local economy but you are also choosing real flavour and authenticity,” said Cedric Paquet, spokesman of the Belgian company.
The company has been producing caviar for the past 30 years and to date they are the only Belgian producer. “The closure of the restaurant sector during the pandemic has impacted our business but we have seen an increased interest from Belgian consumers for our products which have helped to increase demand for our products,” Mr Paquet said.
Mr Paquet said that caviar is an exceptional product that needs to be served in the best possible manner. “We want to offer Belgian consumers something different. We box every package separately so consumers are able to see when the caviar has been packaged and until when it can be served. In many cases, this is not the case,’ he said.
