It all started in Kerksken, a small village in East Flanders, on a family farm where poultry was grown in open air.
Every Sunday the residents of the village, and of the nearby villages, lined up with their frying pan to buy these delicious roast chickens.
Because of the success of this initiative, the young generation decided to open several stores of game and poultry in Kerksken, Aalst, Zottegem and Brussels.
In 2002 the third generation, with this family tradition in mind, founded the first catering business of Fonteyne The Kitchen.
Fonteyne The Kitchen will over the years, supplement its range of traditional recipes with dishes from all horizons in its ever-growing number of stores.
We are convinced that healthy food ensures a better well-being. The taste of our dishes shows that pleasure and health can go hand in hand.
We make our own new recipes in our stores and workshops.
We cook with fresh products that are delivered daily, just like at home.
We never use artificial colors and preservatives; our dishes naturally have a limited shelf life.
Most of our old loyal suppliers and farmers are located in the Aalst region. We regularly work together with suppliers and producers from Brussels and Wallonia.
We adapt our menu according to the season and events.
We use little fat, salt and sugar and prefer the use of olive oil. We use a lot of fresh vegetables and have a selection of bio products. Together with our dietitians, we have developed a lot of gluten-free and vegetarian dishes.
