Cooacht by Zouzou Ben Chikha spices, bakes, prepares and serves Maxime in Le Chicon live his favourite vegetable and our Flemish pride: chicory. On his white Air Maxen he digs into the multicultural soil of his past, dotted with chicory heads and durum wheat. What does he cast off and what does he wish to cherish? Maxime goes in search of his roots from behind the stove and fights against his tormentors.
