The Belgium techno god drums up a gastro feast…


A record that always reminds you of Ibiza

The MFA – The Difference it Makes (Superpitcher mix)

Because…“Ibiza, it makes just the difference folks.”

Your perfect breakfast would be…

A “Shades of Green” smoothie/juice at Passion followed up with a granola with fruit and not forgetting a BIG and STRONG coffee.


The most unusual thing I have ever eaten…

Intestines from a certain animal, lucky the guy in China told it me “AFTER” the dinner, as I would have never eaten them!

The dish that reminds me of my childhood

Vanilla pudding with cookies that my father used to make every Saturday evening before we went to bed.


Who taught you to cook?

My father and self taught through watching lots of cooking programs on TV – I find them far more interesting than the daily trash about politics and war etc.

Your favourite 2 restaurants in your home country Belgium…

The Jane – Antwerp with my buddy Nik Bril – he is a genius!


The Blue Elephant – Brussels, just because I am a big fan of Thai food!

A DJ or musician that has surprised you with their cooking skills?

Your guilty pleasure food. You know you shouldn’t but you always do…

A nice sweet chocolate cookie in the morning with my coffee – damn!

You get in from the club pissed, dive in the fridge and usually come out with…?

TOO MUCH! Hopefully I would eat lots of green salad with avocado with my girlfriend, but normally I end up eating spaghetti…..not so healthy!

The most expensive meal you have ever had?

It was a dinner at a 3 Michelin star restaurant in my home country, but unfortunately I went home starving from hunger!

The most disgusting thing you have ever eaten at a festival?

Well I remember some horrible things with flies all over it and god knows what more horrible insects were in there. The “chef” was smashing it on the plate and he was dripping with sweat when serving customers…..awesome!

What is your signature dish?

A medium Spicy Thai Fish Soup…..


If you could have a master-class with a celebrity chef, who’d you pick and why?

Nick Bril from the restaurant The Jane in Antwerp, Belgium. One of the best restaurants in the world right now!


Dead or alive – 3 famous people you would invite around for dinner…

Bono from U2 (one of my heroes), Bruce Lee and The Dalai Lama.

A dish you have yet to master…

Too many to name! Sorry.

Your favourite pizza topping?

Rucola and Onions

Your biggest ever food cock up?

Hmmm I have had a few…..too embarrassed to say!

A dish you just cannot stomach?

Rabbit, sorry but I just can’t ever eat it!

The last time you used a cook book for a meal…

Honestly, never. I like to improvise!


My favourite restaurants on the island…

Dolce Vita Italian restaurant, because it’s like family when you go there for dinner. The chef, the waiters, everyone there loves techno and they serve every customer with so much love and passion!

The best sunset spot for a cold drink…

Elements at Beniras


Your favourite Ibiza dish

Fish from the island combined with vegetables or Paella

The perfect 24 hours in Ibiza would be…

Check ino one of the rooms at Can Argoturismo or your own villa if you have one, shower and straight for a drink at KM5, heading out to your favorite club or party. For me, that’s going to be MATERIA and the Cocoon After Party! A nice meal at either Coricancha (below)


or Sa Caleta and then I guess heading back to the airport….or did we pass the 24 hours already?!
