Yesterday, we had the opportunity to attend the very first edition of Chef’s Invitation, the brand-new project of former 3-star chef Gert De Mangeleer at restaurant L.E.S.S. Eatery in Bruges. Together with chefs Susumu Shimizu and Hiroyasu Kawate, Gert De Mangeleer and Ruige Vermeire created an exquisite menu that combined perfectly the cuisine and unique style of the four chefs. It became a great, culinary night out in the beautiful city of Bruges, boasting a well-balanced mixture of the Belgian and Japanese cuisine.
With the opening of L.E.S.S. Eatery and Bar Bulot, the former 3-star chef Gert De Mangeleer has shown that even after the closure of restaurant Hertog Jan, he remains full of passion, energy and innovative ideas. Recently, he introduced his brand-new project to the world: a culinary concept called ‘Chef’s Invitation’.
