  • Description


    Welcome to our kitchen!

    Cooking balanced seasonal menus that use the highest quality of fresh, local and organic ingredients, we want to bring people together to connect with one another over cuisine driven by love and prove once and for all that really healthy food can be really creative and of course delicious!

    Right now is your opportunity to train to cook delicious vegan meals. In doing so, you are helping us to offer the local and global community 5 evenings per week a new style of dinning; food made with love that brings people together to be nourished and share our special 3-4 course menu of the week.

    Our vision is also unique because we want to be more than a place serving good food. We want to create a collaborative kitchen that both trains new chefs and also employs these chefs on a free-lance basis.


    Gabriel, a fantastic chef from Brazil is now running the kitchen in Antwerp.
    Meanwhile Simone is now back in her beloved Indian Himalaya and also offering workaway opportunities there, if you are interested have a look at that profile which is Narayan Home Stay in Himachal Pradesh India.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Our place is located just around the corner from the Staadspark (city park), and just a few minutes from the old city center. Antwerp has many beautiful spots to discover. I love the parks (one even has a large natural swimming pool!), Antwerp yoga (just around the corner), cafes, museums, festivals and much more.

    Locals call Antwerp a village because it has a relaxed, safe, cozy feeling and everyone seems to know each other on the other hand Antwerp has a rich offering comparable to a much larger city...

    And don't forget how central Antwerp is and how many interesting places are nearby, like: Brussels, Bruges, Leuven, the Belgian Ardenne and Amsterdam to name but a few!
