Rizom is the sixth project of chef Sang Hoon Degeimbre (L’air du temps**, Liernu).
This brasserie-style restaurant – and cafeteria – situated in the heart of the Musée des Arts Contemporains du Grand Hornu and the Centre d’innovation et du design, presents a cuisine on the crossroads of cultures.
The Walloon basin itself originated from various migrations. Today it is the home of age-old regional products and at the same time it is the cradle of modern thinking and technology. Rizom’s cuisine sprouts from these contrasts, and reflects the idea of the contemporary regional cuisine of Sang Hoon Degeimbre.
Rizom presents a cuisine with diverse roots, and brings fresh, local and seasonal products on the plate.
Considered as one of the most beautiful sites of 19th century industrial archeology in Europe, the former Grand-Hornu colliery has been listed as UNESCO World Heritage of Humanity since 2012. Owned by the Province of Hainaut, it now houses two institutions which organise some 10 exhibitions each year: the CID, centre for innovation and design, and the MAC’s, the Museum of Contemporary Arts.
