As a Belgian ambassador, Brussels Airlines is pleased to offer you a taste of Belgium’s internationally acclaimed cuisine in Business Class. A host of Michelin-starred Belgian chefs will create special dishes using local regional produce to be served on board our long haul flights out of Brussels.

Julien Lahire (Moulin Hideux)

For the spring season (April - July 2014), we are proud to present the creations of Chef Julien Lahire from the award-winning restaurant Moulin Hideux. Set in the heart of the Semois Valley in the Ardennes, the restaurant is part of the Auberge du Moulin Hideux, a magnificent 17th century mill that has been converted into a hotel. The cuisine is rooted in the local region, with game being the speciality of the house.
