Prizes awarded by the Club

From 1954, the Club began to hand over "Oscars" to belgian Chefs. Since 1996 the Club awards two prizes. The "Prix Cristal" rewards the best Belgian chef that the Club visited during the previous year, the other, the "Chef de l'Avenir," is awarded to a talented young chef, also visited during the year preceding the Award ceremony. This latter prize replaces since 2017 the "Prix de Haute Gastronomie."
