Let’s get creative!

Restaurants seem to have tried almost everything “normal” by now that’s been offered on the food market. That means, that in order to quench the thirst for new flavours, chefs need to get more creative and offer more than just the traditional expected brunch and breakfast dishes.

Your task is that you’ll have to come up with the most amazing breakfast/brunch recipe!

We want to see how creative you are when it comes to breaking the accepted norms in traditional cuisine. We want to see traditional dishes,transformed in a unique way and be presentable and interesting.

A few you tips you can find useful:

  • maybe you will find Chef Henri Donneaux inspiring on this video.
