Roger Souvereyns is one of the most influential kitchen chefs in Belgian history. Roger & I is the story of a career spanning 65 years. More than forty chefs and sommeliers testify to the lasting influence that his exceptional talent, visionary approach and charismatic personality have left on them. Respectfully, enthusiastically and at times critically, they look back on their time spent in the Scholteshof restaurant. At the same time, each from his own experience depicts Roger Souvereyns as a one-of-a-kind chef, who was a generation ahead of his time.
Roger & I offers a very special retrospective of and insight into the ‘Souvereyns school’, together with more than forty contemporary recipes. Originally conceived as a homage, Roger & I has become simultaneously a captivating time capsule, a testimony that will not only fascinate and inspire those who work in and around restaurant kitchens, but also entrepreneurs and professionals operating outside of our food culture.
