Roger van Damme fell in love with baking at the tender age of 10. He remembers his father making cookies and the incredible aromas as they were in the oven. From then on baking became a hobby and over time, his true passion. He began a pastry chef apprenticeship in Bruges and in 1994 went on to open his own restaurant, Het Gebaar. He was soon awarded the GaultMillau prize for the best dessert menu. 2010 was a memorable year; he received a Michelin star, was awarded 18/20 by GaultMillau and, last but by no means least, was voted Chef of the Year! But things didn't stop there, in 2017 he was awarded perhaps the most prestigious accolade to date, ‘Best Pastry Chef in the World’. For Roger, life really is sweet.
