Roger Van Damme

Roger van Damme is a renowned pastry chef. Born and raised in the Netherlands, but since the opening of his Antwerp lunch-lounge restaurant Het Gebaar, he is particularly highly praised in Belgium. 

Van Damme created a Desirée tableware collection which is part of a project he launched in 2020: the opening of his new business of the same name, with which he lets a modern wind blow through the icon of Antwerp, Désirée de Lille.

"Although I am a fan of white tableware, I wanted to add a touch of sweetness to Désirée in the form of a warm pink hue," explains top pastry chef Roger van Damme. "The golden edge has to accentuate that luxurious sense of patisserie, without becoming kitsch."
