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. Beer or wine is included in your experience!
This is a wonderful opportunity to peek into a Belgian home and learn about the country, its locals and their cuisine!
Your host Suzy is an incredibly warm, wonderful and delightful host with a lovely sense of humor. Her home is a beautiful and peaceful haven, filled with beautiful Flemish art inherited from her family and surrounded by gorgeous rambling gardens.
Suzy learned to cook through experimentation and from her mother who she says was a great cook. Growing up, dinner time was always her favorite memory because she enjoyed the healthy food and delightful conversations with family at the table. She is now excited to host travelers over food and engaging conversation at her table. You can begin your culinary adventure with a walk around Suzy's lush garden, dotted with fruit trees and several varieties of herbs.
Please note that some parts of the dishes need to cook for several hours and may be cooked in advance to save time during the lesson.
