Kristof Timmermans

Growing up in the countryside, chef Kristof Timmermans was already helping his mom out in the kitchen as a young boy. Inspired by the magic of cooking, studying at the hotel school in Anderlecht was the next logical step. Climbing the ladder as an apprentice, Kristof started out cooking at the homes of celebrities and worked his way up to sous chef and, ultimately, a full-fledged chef. He acquired culinary experience at acclaimed restaurants such as restaurant Terborght (Beersel) and restaurant Marcus (Deerlijk). Throughout the years, it has become clear what chef Kristof’s signature cooking style truly is about: accuracy, discipline, and dishes with a clear identity. By focusing on the ingredients themselves, the textures and flavour combinations of his dishes never cease to amaze.
