#KimchiParty with Sang-Hoon Degeimbre

Last year, we had the pleasure to talk about fermentation with Sang-Hoon Degeimbre, the 2 Michelin stars chef from L’Air du temps, in Belgium.  We learned why fermentation is so important (to preserve vegetable of its garden), its benefits (perfect to highlight the products and add flavours) and – this is where it gets interesting – what are Sang-Hoon’s favourites recipes! And you know us, we are curious and we are hungry! So we could not resist and ask him to give us a little teaser of its cuisine!  On the menu?

Baby it's cold outside, let's lagom

Baby it's cold outside, let's lagom

Forget about Hygge, here’s a new and more sustainable way to do cosy. The last couples of years were all about Hygge, (Danish pinnacle of cosiness and warmth ) But thanks to digital age, we’ve been graced by an even better, more sustainable and enjoyable lifestyle we'll all be dreaming of : LAGOM. While the idea of curling up with a hot chocolate by a fireplace is appealing, it’s not the only Scandi philosophy we’re crushing on at Le Parfait. The Swedish cousin of Hygge, LAGOM, which can translate by « not too little, not too much, just right »  seems to be about a simpler way of life, living in a more intentionally...

How to make your outdoor space look like a little paradise!

How to make your outdoor space look like a little paradise!

Summer is here and with it it’s finally time to reclaim those little bit of heavens we left aside for so long: gardens, balconies, terraces or any piece of outdoors you can reach!  Think about it, there are at least (we’re quite optimistic at Le Parfait headquarters) 3 months of good weather to come, so at least 90 days to enjoy sunbathing, gathering, drinks or just relaxing with a book outside.   Now, how good would it feel to spend this time in a little jungle handmade by yourself? Or to have a nice cool drink at the end of the day surrounded by little lights and candles? So atmospheric, so perfect right?  Well roll up your sleeves, put some...
