Failure was not an option. After numerous internships at celebrated restaurants, chef Edwin, his wife Fleur Boussy and fellow chef and brother-in-law Frederik opened Cuines,33 a unique tapas-centred restaurant in Knokke. Less than a year later, their drive, exqui- site taste and passion were rewarded a ﬁrst Michelin star. After Frederik left the restaurant, the menu at Cuines,33 reﬂects Edwin’s personality even more. His seasonal kitchen is characterized by bold ﬂavours and a cosmopolitan ﬂair. The restaurant’s interior is as eclectic and colourful as the dishes. Edwin Menue ﬁnds inspiration in everything: an odd-shaped twig in the forest, a colourful tagine in Marrakech, the scent of Barcelona, a broken plate, a tattoo… This book tells the remarkable story of a chef for whom only the best is good enough. A perfectionist with only one goal in mind: to offer his guests an unforgettable experience.
