Experience Authentic Belgian Cuisine: Cooking Lesson and Meal with a Ghent Local
Join Suzy in her modern kitchen and learn to cook three Belgian dishes that might include a soup or dessert, appetizer and main. You can expect the cooking experience to last two hours before you sit down and share the meal you helped prepare with Suzy and Bob. You might try stoverij (juicy chunks of beef stewed in beer), vol au vent (chicken and mushrooms in a bechamel sauce), witloof (Belgian endive with cheese and ham) or Suzy's creation roast chicken with fresh garden vegetables and homemade bread. Suzy is particular about cooking with high quality ingredients - she gets her meat from a local butcher that personally sources from a local farm. This is a wonderful opportunity to peek into a Belgian home and learn about the country, its locals and their cuisine!
