Proud to be Belgian: The surreal dinner of Charles Kaisin!

This is one of those events you have to experience at least once in a lifetime when you are a globe trotter and love the luxury of an atypical evening with a light and mischievous atmosphere!
Between the reality of the most delicate gastronomy and the phantasmagorical world of the show, Brussels designer and scenographer Charles Kaisin has struck again to make live experiences poetic and tasty, beyond any dream and fantasy!
His concept? Unconventional surrealist dinners, inspired by, of course, Belgian surrealism, that are attracting luxury brands, striving to celebrate the many festive occasions that adorn their lives!
Today, we dive right in so you can experience and magic of one of these evenings that do more than stand out, they become legendary!
It’s in Brussels, more precisely at the Palais des Beaux-Arts, renamed Bozar, that the formidable campaign Proud to be Belgian comes to a close, also under the patronage of the designer Charles Kaisin - who had taken up residence all summer at the Maasmechelen Village, celebrating the colours of the Belgian flag in a custom print, pattern and decor for this village of the Bicester Village Shopping Collection...

Tonight, the most noble of Belgians were gathered to celebrate Belgitude and the talents of a people who are often known for their excessive humility…

Among the most prestigious guests, we noted Princess Lea of ​​Belgium, Baron Edouard Vermeulen, creator of the house Natan who dresses all the crowned heads of Europe, and the hatter Elvis Pompilio... and of course, to direct and manage the evening, Charles Kaisin, who was very busy!

At the table for this Proud to be Belgian evening, they were 100% Belgian guests enjoying the fine cuisine, staged as it should be, in a ceremonial choreography, constantly reminding guests what Belgitude is, like these black, yellow and red bells at the cheeky Mannekenpis unveiling a smoked trout appetizer!

A Belgian surrealist evening that has amazed its famous guests, including beautiful actresses exiled in Paris, but present in Brussels to talk about her next projects...

With Ommegang waders, for example, for the very Brussels touch, every service on the menu brought a lot of surprises, thanks to Chef Pierre Résimont's effective recipes...

A worthy representative of Belgian surrealism, but for a literary version, actor and writer Stéphane De Groodt left the Parisian film sets to bring his little touch of madness to the adventure of the surrealist dinner, at the exit, a frame, to better play on words…

And for this extraordinary evening, we have perfectly recomposed the space outside of convention. Between the pantheon of Belgian paper personalities, from Diane von Furstenberg to Benoît Poelvoorde and the play on themes, the dinner ends on a must taste chocolatey note, by a master in his field, Pierre Marcolini, who imagined an Atomium, a tasty Belgian monument that’s simply delicious...

verything made with great chocolates from two cocoa beans, one from Ecuador, a 100% Ariba, and the other from Cameroon, a Yaounde with a forastero...
After the pleasures of the palate, the show ends in style!
Sequins that explode for a guaranteed perfect visual effect and an evening that has put stars in the eyes and Belgitude in your head...
