Christophe Pauly, chef of restaurant Le Coq aux Champs in Soheit-Tinlot, Belgium will be welcoming Filip Claeys, chef of the Bruges restaurant De Jonkman and the face of the collective North Sea Chefs for a special four hands dinner on 16 October.
The dinner, the second in a series of three dinners being organised by the chef from Wallonia will be an unusual dinner which brings together ‘the farm’ and ‘the sea’. This is because the chef, who has his restaurant in the middle of the Wallonian countryside will be inviting Bruges based chef Filip Claeys whose focus is mainly fish.
Over the past years, Filip Claeys has been working to raise awareness about the need to use all the fish that are caught by fishermen and not just the ones which are fashionable. When he started, he lost 30 per cent of his customers in the process at his gastronomic restaurant but now, nearly 10 years after founding North Sea Chefs he has managed to convince many of Belgium’s best chefs to follow suit.
He will be joining forces with Christophe Pauly in his restaurant on 16 October. Earlier this year, in July, he had welcomed Dimitry Lysens of Michelin star restaurant Magis in Tongres. The guest chef on Sunday 26 November will be Karen Torosyan, chef of the Michelin star restaurant Bozar Brasserie in Brussels.
Next year, the Wallonian chef will be reciprocating the visits.
The six course menu costs 115 euros per person and 165 euros with wine pairing. Reservations can be made on 085 51 20 14. Address: LE COQ AUX CHAMPS 71 Rue du Montys 4557 Soheit-Tinlot
