Syrco Bakker and Sergio Herman have announced that this year’s Foodfest will take place on Monday June 4 in and around Strandkerk in Cadzand-Bad.
This year, Syrco and Sergio have 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 these chefs today work in some great restaurants in the Netherlands, Belgium and even further afield such as New York and Singapore among others.
Together, they will be working with beautiful Zeeland products that they had used when they worked at Oud Slouis. “We are very much looking forward to working with them on 4 June. During Foodfest, they will all make their own dish with the produce from our region,” said Syrco and Sergio.
75% of the tickets for the event have already been sold out. Foodfest is a festival where in addition to art, music and inspiring talks, good food and drink takes centre stage.
After two successful early editions, the organisers say that they have put together a wonderful programme that will put the spotlight on Zeeland with its unique produce from the sea and the land.
