Revealed to the general public in the Top Chef show of which he was a finalist in 2013, the chef took over the family inn at Vert Mont in Boeschepe in the North. This is where he developed his cuisine based on the Flemish terroir. And so it was there that he learned Friday evening before his service that he would no longer have the famous macaroon.
In a long Facebook post published a few hours later, Florent Ladeyn expressed his surprise and his incomprehension when faced with the Red Guide’s decision.
“So we disappointed someone with their rating criteria and I regret it. But in the face of all your positive opinions, is it that serious? In my eyes, I always said that the best restaurant is one that is full, not the best rated, and I want to thank all those who come to Vert Mont as many for so many years ”, relativizes also Florent Ladeyn who will be able to console himself – if it is necessary – by reading the positive comments posted under his Facebook post.
