It just doesn't get any better than this. Seriously. The process is half the fun and beauty of it all too. Choosing and buying fresh ingredients in the local market. Standing around and watching in admiration as my dear friend prepared and cooked. One fantastic meal after another. Described as "simple" but they were truly anything but. Sorry, cher ami. All of this so very much bears repeating. ;-)))
Geisha_Girl with Christian.Lafont depart from Brussels to Paris. They got 2 hrs. free waiting to their high speed train at Midi Station, best to spend a meeting with local Vter's!!
What to do? try Belgian waffle with cuppa coffee and hot choco! haha GG! I hope you had fun with the waffle, but hey..did yah like it?.
On a crazy-cold, wet and even snowy (well, it tried!) noontime along the Grand Place, these girls had the right idea: yummy hot waffles with powdered sugar! Messy, sure, but that's what the napkins were for. Mmmmm, you can smell the chocolate and sugar from here, can't you?
Not without reason speak, that Bruxelles is the gastronomic capital of Europe. In the evenings its restaurants are filled with thousand gourmets who enjoy various cuisines.
The Belgians are kings when it comes to fries. Thick fries with that typical sour-ish, mustardy mayonaise. Just buy them in a shop sayin 'FRITUUR' or off a street stall. Yummy!
No Brussels visit is complete without you having a WAFFEL.
They come as plane waffels with some powder sugar or with all kind of tasty dressings.
If you are in Brussels or Belgium you definately have to eat mussels served with french fries. Yummy. I could eat tonnes of it :-)
Brussels Sprouts were named after Brussels, the capital of Belgium, where they were first thought to have been cultivated.
One more thing, make sure you try some Belgain chocolate. My girlfriend thought she died and went to heaven, when she tried their truffles.
Yes, we have ginger bread for Christmas in Sweden too but nothing quite prepares you for speculoosen :) To be ctd.
