*Celebrates the A'Qi restaurant, located in Bruges, Belgium, which has just been awarded a Michelin star*Fantastic photography of exquisite dishes Restaurant A'Qi thrives on contrasts.
Never taking anything for granted and daring to go against the flow have proven to be a recipe for success as the restaurant has recently been awarded a Michelin star.
The restaurant's two chefs, Arnold Hanbuckers and Anita Desmet, are both strong willed, with great personality and their own voice.
Their kitchen is a dialogue, and their four hands have carefully composed every plate that is presented.
Their inventive, colorful cuisine fuses Asian refinement and Western culinary tradition, a combination of nature and culture.
A deep love for pure raw materials and unrefined nature result in exquisite dishes with a hint of the exotic and eccentric, but always well-balanced and never over processed.
A good product doesn't need many embellishments. Getting this balance 'just right' is the biggest thrill for the chefs and the greatest delight for their clientele.
