Renaat Morel was decorated in the Belgian Embassy

Residence of the Belgian Ambassador

On 16 September 2018 Renaat Morel was decorated in the Belgian Embassy, in the presence of the Belgian Ambassador Marc Vinck, the Governor of the Province of Antwerp Mrs. Cathy Berx and many of the Belgian community and friends.
Renaat Morel is the chef and owner of the Belgian Restaurant Morel’s. Also decorated was Zeng Su, Chief Representative of POM Antwerp in Chongqing.
The event took place well before the pandemic hit us all. In the pictures you can see many of the people who left Beijing since then.

That is the title of the decoration for our friend Renaat. We are all proud of the chef and grateful for spoiling us with the food.

I was myself decorated on 21 November 2004 in the embassy as “Chevalier de l’Ordre de la Couronne – Ridder in de Kroonorde – Knight of the Order of the Crown”. Belgium has several decorations see an overview.

Of course food and drinks was done by the Belgian Restaurant Morel’s and his team.
