Chef Gert de Mangeleer and sommelier Joachim Boudens caused quite a stir when they took over restaurant Hertog Jan, located in the beautiful city of Bruges, Belgium, in 2005. Just one year later, in 2006, followed by rave reviews from local press and prestigious culinary organisations alike, the restaurant was awarded its first Michelin star, followed by its second in 2009 and ultimately its third in 2011, which it has maintained ever since.

Overseeing the kitcchen at hertog Jan as executive chef, Gert produces dishes using modern techniques and his own home-grown vegetables, herbs and flowers which he grows at a nearby farm in Zedelgem.

In addition to his dedication to the kitchen at restaurant Hertog Jan, chef Mangeleer is also an avid supporter of the “Young Chefs” project of the Flemish Ministry of Tourism, which he helped pioneer in 2011.
