Delicious, healthy, cooked food for everyone

Imagine it’s almost midday.

You’re hungry.

Your stomach is rumbling.

And you know that in a moment, you’ll be shuffling along one of the tables at the Abattoir covered market, together with friends, or lovely people you’ve only just met.

Ready for a delicious, warm vegetarian lunch, cooked with leftovers from the market and—why not—a spontaneous chat?

Then come along!

You’re even welcome to join us in the kitchen next time if cooking sounds like fun to you.

Welcome to our DREAMKITCHEN.

Why Dreamkitchen?

We all deserve hot meals. But not all of us have access to them.

This problem became even clearer during the corona crisis. A reason for DREAMKITCHEN: a place where we can cook, eat and chat together.

In a nutshell

An open-air place to enjoy lunch.

Free contributions: you choose what you pay.

Warm and healthy meals.

Feel free to take a reusable container with you.

We follow the ‘When it’s gone, it’s gone’ principle.


Ideal for a nice chat and meeting new people.

Everyone is welcome to cook with us.

Who’s it for?

Everyone who’s interested in a delicious and nutritious lunch.

Practical info

  • Monday to Thursday from 12 p.m. to 1.30 p.m.
  • Be sure to have a table? It’s possible by booking your table via this link.
  • Are you dropping by on Wednesday afternoon? Then you’ll find KETMET here from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. KETMET gives children a gigantic public space in which they can play, dive into jam-packed toy boxes, and be energised by volunteer playworkers.
  • Would you like to do something to stop food waste? Or do you need fruit and vegetables? COLLECTMET is for you! On Sunday, we collect food that would otherwise be thrown away. On Monday, we distribute it to people who’ll put it to good use.

Would you like to lend a helping hand in the kitchen? Do you have a question? Email victoria@cultureghem.be.
