With a new three-star, two new two-stars and seven new single-stars, Flanders once again collects most of the Michelin distinctions this year.
Always eagerly awaited by the profession, the release of the Michelin Belgium and Luxembourg red guide took place in recent years in November, on the occasion of an event that was systematically held at the Horecatel Fair in Ghent, in the north of the country. This year, Covid obliges, this exit had to be postponed for two months and it was last Monday that Bibendum virtually announced these decisions in front of an audience of chefs installed behind their screens, always Covid obliges, this time live from the Royal Theater of Mons.
For once the outing took place in the Walloon Region, we hoped that the tire inspectors would have discovered that there is also good gastronomy south of the language border. Unfortunately, the effort was lost, the Michelin 2021 prize list once again remains very yellow and black, with Flanders pocketing the majority of the distinctions.
