Louise always had a passion for cooking, being a little girl she spend quite some time with her grandma in the kitchen. She was the only grandchild allowed to be around while grandma was creating masterpiece wedding cakes. Quietly sitting and watching her grandma’s every move, she came to love the art of food. “Cooking is like therapy, and every dish is a kind of art – expressing your mood at that point”.
Dreaming of having a place where guests can enjoy good food and good wine a restaurant was slowly established at De Denne. Living out a dream became a reality when she kept on feeling the need to name the restaurant and take it to higher levels. Literally one night in a dream the name Ma Belle was in her head, not knowing what it meant she googled it the next morning and was amazed by the meaning. It fitted what she had in mind perfectly, beautiful food – beautiful wine and beautiful views.
