GASTRONOMY

In the country of festivities and hospitality, we like to get together around a good table !

Regional food is to be found in "estaminets", those small Flemish restaurants where "Carbonade" (small chunks of beef stewed in beer), "Waterzoï" (poultry or fish in a creamy sauce, served with baby vegetables) and "Potjevleesch" (white eat terrine in aspic) are washed down with a locally brewed beer.

For the sweet tooth, we eat the sugar tart, the custard cream and the filled-waffle with "vergeoise" (sugar made Gastronomie from sugar-beet syrup).

Finally, all good meals are finished off with a "Genièvre", and eau de vie made from grains and flavoured with juniper berries.
