Sergio Herman is opening a new restaurant where he will also be behind the stove. The 53-year-old chef last did it ten years ago at his famous restaurant Oud Sluis.
In conversation with BN Distem Hermann told him that he would be cooking with chef Tim Burry at an as-yet-unnamed restaurant in Antwerp. “From January 2024, we will do this on a regular basis, depending on my schedule. I will do what I missed again: cooking.”
After leaving Oud Sluis, Herman started several restaurants. He wasn’t always there as a chef in the kitchen. Now the chef feels this need again.
“You’re on top of the world, you’re looking for the best, for the stars,” Herman says. “But it was also a lot. I’m 53 now and I look at life differently than I used to. At that time it was always a blast… until you think: What am I doing with myself?”
Hermann noted that he was less interested in creativity and especially in organization. “Moving people from one company to another, downsizing, expanding again… and always giving explanations.”
The chef, who divorced Ellemieke Vermolen in 2021, wants to spend more time with his children. “I’ve already started doing it as much as possible. Anyway, I see them more now than before.”
