EVERYBODY LOVES GELINAZ! WHAT DO YOU LOVE BEST ABOUT IT?

To be air-dropped alone upon foreign soil with only a camera & an empty notebook is a task in itself – to be able to whisk up a tasting-menu from scratch is another.

It could only be done with the ultra-kind and super-professional help of the home team – folk of McCrady’s Charleston, where I was the guest chef of the Gelinaz! Shuffle last year, were wonder children indeed, I long to return one shiny day.

 

How would you express your last year’s experience in 3 sentences?

The hospitality of the South was second to none: gracious people, a beautiful state.

Martha Lou’s incredible fried chicken – I still have withdrawal pains.

Dan & Dano’s shrimp-grits at Geechie Boy Farm haunt me to this day.

 

WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO FOR THIS YEAR when you will be cooking at the Gelinaz! HQ in Brussels?

The beautifully well-orchestrated chaos that is GELINAZ.

Twenty cooks checking their egos in at the door, and going with the flow.

Supporting a hard hit city with all we have – it could have happened to any of us.

 

What would be your message to your fellow Gelinaz?

Travel with a happy heart and an open mind – and again, check your ego in at the door.
