Essence

  1. FOOD FOR THOUGHT

    Vegetarian and vegan cuisine is not always popular with chefs, as it requires considerable research and offers limited options. "Three years ago, I noticed that it had become a source of irritation for many of the chefs in my area when yet another vegetarian order was placed," explains chef Friedjof Kempenaar from Rotterdam, the Netherlands. "They were not particularly interested. On the other hand, I knew lots of vegetarians who often complained that they were appeased with a goats cheese salad far too often."
  2. DESIGNED FOR CHEFS

    Aside from chef jackets, bib aprons, pants and hats, we felt it was time for something new. And what was still missing from our collection? Chef footwear! Together with MICHELIN Technical Soles, Chaud Devant took on a new challenge: to develop safe, comfortable and modern footwear for chefs for use in the kitchen and restaurant. The result? The GT1pro Magister.
  3. NICK BRIL VS. ESSENCE

    The life of professional chef Nick Bril is never dull. One moment he is djing at Tomorrowland, the next moment he's cooking in a food truck, followed by a stay-at-home-dad day and then there is also that two Michelin-starred restaurant in Antwerp, Belgium! At The Jane**, he prepares mouth-watering dishes like poached lobster with caviar. His ultimate goal? "My greatest passion is making people happy."
