My mother loved to cook, already when I was still a kid. At a young age I was captivated by her passion for cooking and flavours. I would sit in front of the oven, mesmerised and amazed at what was going on inside. I wanted to learn how to cook, I wanted to understand the magic and master the techniques.
I will not stop until I reach the highest level of my profession. Together with my team, I have created a place where can I surprise my guests and let them enjoy themselves to the fullest. Everything has to be perfect when it comes to flavour, service and atmosphere. Every day again. Welcome to François Geurds Restaurant (2 Michelin stars). Where an evening’s extreme enjoyment is guaranteed. In other words: Fabulous Gastronomy.

Only the very best is good enough for you. FG Bonbons have been made with the utmost care and without any harmful artificial additives. FG Bonbons are A-grade.
The shell of FG Bonbons - prepared with Valrhona Guanaja 70% - is significantly slimmer than average, giving it a nice snap.
The secret of the shell is in the crystallization of the chocolate: the chocolate is tempered or tabled at the right temperature.
The designs - from Mondrian to Delft blue - consist of purely colored cocoa butter.
