A delicious collection of home-cooking from Belgium, based on traditional recipes using the best ingredients. Simple dishes handed down through generations, the familiar flavours that accompany Belgian family life. Well-known classics such as chicons au gratin, deep-fried shrimp croquettes and waffles are all included but there are detours into regional terrines, tarts and pies, plus numerous shop-bought specialities such as Ardenne Ham, Speculoos Biscuits, Sirop de Liege and Herve Cheese. Additionally of course, there is chocolate and beer! With his characteristic wit, charm and irreverence, Eric Boschman provides a fascinating insight into the tastes and preferences, the everyday eating habits of the citizens of Belgium. With happy excursions into the weird and wonderful, this volume explores the Belgian love affair with food and its cultural and social significance. Focusing on the food and drink of Brussels and the five provinces of Wallonia, it is perhaps only A Slice of Belgium - but what a terrific slice it is!
