Lucile Rochelet
Radio Contact Host

Describe yourself, your background and what you do today.
I’m the most Belgian French girl you’ll ever meet! I’ve been a radio host for over a decade now and am lucky to have lived and worked in Brussels since 2004. I have an afternoon radio show on Radio Contact alongside David Antoine, where we have a lot of fun with our audience!

How has where you come from shaped who you are?
Belgium has definitely shaped the person I am today! I discovered the “Belgian side of life” as a newcomer and decided that I would live just like that too – with ironic humour, and a light approach!

How would you describe your attitude to work?
Whenever I see my colleagues at work, it feels like I’m 10 years old again and back at school! Non-stop laughs guaranteed.

On a personal note, what would you say you’re the proudest of?
My relationship, my job, and my many talented friends.

To you, what is a Ketje?
A clever little guy.

What do you think distinguishes Belgium, and its people, from the rest?
Their love for the easy life, humour and trendiness.

If you had to nominate three people that, to you, best symbolised Belgium in its full glory, who would they be and why?
David Antoine, Stromae, and the King.

If you had to take out-of-towners to one essential restaurant in Belgium, which one would it be?
In de Patattezak in Strombeek-Bever, otherwise Skievelat in downtown Brussels.

If you had to take visiting guests out on a Sunday tourist trail, where would you take them and why?
Bois de la Cambre/Ter Kamerenbos, or the Sablon/Zavel neighbourhood.

Sauces, in Belgium at least, are intrinsically linked to French fries. What’s your combination of choice?
It depends – I like to change it up and try them all!

Tell us about the first time you discovered BK sauces.
Probably the Ketjep, the classic!

Why do Belgians do it better?
Because they don’t know they’re the best!
