"There can be no arguing about taste. But I do certainly believe taste is something that can be talked about. And I like that. Not talking about it. No, preparing beautiful dishes with love and devotion. So that you can talk about it.

Because I live for taste. It is a challenge to keep outdoing myself every day and to keep delighting you. And convincing you. I like originality. Sophisticated simplicity without all the fluff. Accessible without being ordinary.

Because I believe good food is the ultimate form of hospitality."

- Maarten Bouckaert
