Akira Oshima, chef of the Yamazato restaurant in Hotel Okura, is the only Japanese chef in Europe to have a Michelin star. His cuisine distinguishes itself from ‘ordinary’ Japanese sushi cuisine through its originality and authenticity. Kaiseki cuisine is based on a tradition of hundreds of years and contains a lot of symbolism and rituals. All dishes and recipes in kaiseki cuisine are made in function of celebrations or important moments throughout the year.
Belgium has all the assets to become a true whisky country. The knowledge required to make whisky is readily available, thanks in part to our centuries-old culture of beer and jenever. A number of Belgian jenever distilleries and breweries have been experimenting with whisky for quite some time, but the concept of ‘Belgian whisky’ only really took off in the recent past. Every year new initiatives arise and time after time the announced releases are sold out in no time. Belgian whisky is appreciated, has become a sought-after collector’s item and regularly wins gold and silver at international competitions.
For the first time, an overview of Belgian whiskies and whisky houses is published in book form.
An indispensable reference work for collectors and whisky lovers alike.
