It was at Le Pittem in Roulers that Agron Billa commenced his training as a chef’s assistant, before continuing at De Meersbloem in Tielt, honing his skills and launching his career, which developed very quickly.
Spotted by the famous chef Krist De Bruyn, he was hired to work in his prestigious one-star restaurant Bistro Novo. Agron then went on to work at the two-star restaurant ‘T Laurierblad in Lochristi before moving to France where he spent several weeks.
Catching the eyes of the greatest chefs, he in fact ended up staying there for several years. He worked at the Château de la Chèvre d’Or**, with Jean-Marc Delacourt (Best Craftsman in France) and Le Lameloise***. His career then took him to Switzerland, as part of the brigade of the famous three-star chef Philippe Rochat, before returning to Belgium, in Bruges, at the famous De Karmeliet***.
Next, he went to England to find new cosmopolitan inspirations at the Pont de la Tour*, in London.
