Louise always had a passion for cooking, being a little girl she spent quite some time with her grandmother in the kitchen. She was the only grandchild allowed to be around while grandma was creating her masterpiece wedding cakes. Quietly sitting and watching her every move, Louise 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. The 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 arrived and not knowing what it meant she Googled it the next morning and was amazed by the meaning. The name fit perfectly with what she had in mind, – beautiful food, beautiful wine and beautiful views.
