EAT Brussels is a unique occasion to experience the creations of the top restaurants and food artisans in Brussels. Guests will be able to discover tasters from the 4-corners of the culinary world, and this year will be able to marry them with glasses of Bordeaux, as they are the ‘wine’ guests of honour at this year’s event.
EAT Brussels (10-13/09/2015)
The Capital region of Brussels and the city of Brussels invite you, for the fourth consecutive year, to the Brussels Restaurants Festival. The wine region of Bordeaux will be presenting, once again this year, its revamped Brussels version of the ‘Bordeaux Fête le Vin’ (Bordeaux Celebrates Wine).
The menu will offer an explosion of tasty discoveries coming from the four corners of the world made available to you at the heart of the Festival eat! BRUSSELS, drink! BORDEAUX, representing the symbol of the culinary variety which we have available here within the city of Brussels. Restaurants representing many countries from around the globe, which have been established here in our capital, will double their efforts in creativity in order to surprise and please everyone interested, even the gourmands among us.
In order to give your discovery another dimension we have the ” Wine Pass “, this will give you the possibility to step into the shoes of a sommelier as well as a chance to get to know the Bordeaux wine world.
For Brussels, cosmopolitan as well international City/Region, this festival represents a great opportunity to get to know, as well as give proper respect to, the regions, the provinces and cities we are linked with by way of cooperative agreements. This year, in collaboration with the Ministry of Exterior Relations and the Department of Exterior Relations of that Ministry, we will strengthen our bilateral partnerships through their specific cuisines.
While taking a break in between tasting sessions we recommend some recreational workshops where you can satisfy your culinary and wine related curiosity. Culinary artisans will be on hand and they will let you in on their talents and know-how.
From the 10th until the 13th of September 2015.
The gourmet promenade will be held at the heart of the Parc de Bruxelles (Warandepark) for the first time.
Uptown Design presents talented designers living in Belgium in shops and hotels of Boulevard de Waterloo, Avenue de la Toison d’Or and Avenue Louise [SEPTEMBER 2015].
This year the second edition of the Uptown Design, located in the upper part of Brussels, doubled its size and welcomes many new prestigious locations! The challenges, remain the same: present talented designers living in Belgium in shops and hotels of Boulevard de Waterloo, Avenue de la Toison d’Or and Avenue Louise. Those areas, well known to gather famous brands from Belgium or all over the world, must become a discovery place for Belgian creation as well. Once a year, they become privileged partners for belgian design.
“A luxury limited edition“
Each designer will present a set of a limited edition or new pieces designed in luxurious or precious material: leather, corian, precious woods, metals and stones…
The pieces will be available for sale, on the spot, directly from the designer. Uptown Design’s assets is to offer exceptional Belgian items to target an audience of collectors and lovers of art and design.
Design by Pol Quadens
If many people consider the Belgian artist Pol Quadens as a designer in the art market, his creative way is completely sculptural. Every piece is selected for its exclusivity, the choice of material but mostly for its unique character which gives advantage to expressivity rather than to functionality. When a bench is not really a bench anymore, or when a lamp becomes a cinetic piece of art… Then design challenges its own goal and free itself towards a new world.

Culinaria: The Belgium Effect
This year, Culinaria has been themed: The Belgium Effect.
Culinaria’s 2015 edition is a celebration of Belgium.
Quelques mots sur le thème : L’agitation autour de la cuisine belge… Cela fait un moment qu’on en parle, plusieurs années déjà que Culinaria l’imagine, la presse, le subodore, la met en mots sous forme de Manifeste (voir notre onglet Ceci n’est pas un manifeste )… L’impatience était à son comble…
Cette année se devait d’être celle de la FÊTE DE LA BELGIQUE , de sa gastronomie, de son terroir humain et de son image sur la scène internationale, un BELGIUM EFFECT en guise de thème de l’année pour l’édition 2015 de Culinaria.

Think detox, think spa, massage and lying around doing pretty much nothing. Perfect program. And as the hotel was only a few streets away from both our houses, we thought we might as much do this seriously, and bring our whole house with us : running shoes, computers, swimsuits, photo equipment : all we needed for a relaxation weekend while working on Brussel’s Kitchen. Best plan ever. …
