Chef (BE), L'Air du temps
"I like combining food products this way. It allows me to create new culinary sensations."
Sang-Hoon Degeimbre, who is a Korean Belgian, runs L'Air du Temps, a Michelin-rated two-star restaurant in Belgium. In 1975, when he was 5 years old, he was adopted by a family in Belgium, where he grew up, and in 1997, he opened his own restaurant. In 2000, it was awarded a one-star rating by Michelin, and in 2006, another star was added, making him a world-class star chef, and renowned as a master of molecular gastronomy.
Sang-Hoon works with fresh products which are grown and harvested in a radius of 15 km around the restaurant. One of the reasons for his success is his precise cooking of these products.
