90 Healthy Recipes, also for János Oven and Air Dishwasher Bars as he receives his first batch of his cardboard boxes. Title 90 Healthy Recipes, also for the oven and fryer is the science that covers the load. Or at least not quite, because the number turned out to be incorrect. In fact, the reader gets at least 100 recipes. Janos laughs: “My mother and I have come back a little careless.” There is also pea soup from “Bonneke” in János’ book, on October 17, he lives with his mother, Sabine Van Wichelen, 51, in an apartment in Ravenhofstraat. About six years ago, when Janos was suffering more and more from autism and had to pay attention to his health for what he was eating, Sabine helped him prepare some dishes and posted them on Facebook. The perfect move, as it turned out, because the boy with it got a lot of positive feedback and got more and more followers. This boosted his confidence. He still posts a dish or two on social media every day, and says proudly, “As Healty Chef János, I already have over 24,000 followers on Facebook.” “All happy people because I encourage you to cook delicious and healthy. Beware: my book contains healthy recipes but it is not a diet book. By the way, there is something very solid in it: delicious pea soup from my late grandmother, Bonneki. This family recipe must not be missing. I am glad Pretty much because my grandfather Josef van Wychelen could try publishing my book. He is now 90 and also lives in Tarhout. I dedicate the book to him.” As Healty Chef János, I already have over 24,000 followers on Facebook.90 healthy recipes, as well as for the oven and scrubber Air, published by Dutch Boekscout and printed on demand.

However, the industrial kitchen does not lose its interest. “I’d rather have a bar food. Or take part in the kitchen of one of the great restaurants like De Mangerie in Bruges. My biggest dream is to become a TV chef. How do I want to do that! Although I realize that it will not be easy to achieve this dream. Although János usually takes over the entire kitchen in the house and his mother should only enjoy his delicious preparations, he received culinary stimulation from her.
