The story of chef Nick Bril
For Nick Bril, the chef and owner of two-Michelin star restaurant The Jane in Antwerp (Belgium), performing at the highest level on the culinary stage is the result of a constant search for perfection through continuous improvement, combined with endless passion and relentless commitment to keep pushing boundaries.

Nick Bril is the owner and chef of the highly acclaimed two-Michelin star restaurant The Jane in Antwerp (Belgium), No. 89 of 50 Best Restaurants in the World, 18/20 Gault-Millau, and so on.

We follow Nick on a journey to Japan to explore Japanese food culture.
