Date(s) - 11/05/2017
09:30 - 13:00


There is more to Belgian cuisine than just chocolates, waffles, fries and beer – this country has more three-star restaurants per capita than anywhere in Europe!  Its geographical location also means that food is pretty varied with Dutch, French and German influences blending together.

When:  Thursday, May 11th, starting at 9.30am till about 1.00pm thereabouts

Where:  Nathalie’s home in Neustadt (address will be provided to those attending)

What:  “Gentse Waterzooi” is a famous stew from Ghent.  In the middle ages, it was made with fish from the rivers Lys and Scheldt around Ghent.  During the 18th and 19th centuries, the Industrial Revolution swept through Belgium and polluted the river waters.  As the fishes died out, people began using chicken to make the stew.  An interesting bit of trivia – apparently, “Waterzooi” is the favorite dish of Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor who was born in Ghent.

There is space for 8 participants.  Online registration is now open.
