From chocolate to beer and waffles to fries, Belgian food is among the most beloved worldwide.
The unique food makes it reason enough for anyone, especially diehard foodies, to plan a trip to this
heaven of taste buds! After all, Belgian cuisine is made keeping its flavour in mind.
The Embassy of Belgium in Kingston recently welcomed Belgian chefs Bart Denys and Dries Cloet,
from the Hotelschool Ter Duinen in Koksijde!
Hugo Verbist, ambassador of Belgium to Jamaica, showcased the skills and creativity of the two in an intimate setting at the Spanish Court Hotel in New Kingston.
Guests indulged their taste buds with ultimate culinary treats, delving into the delectable and diverse world of Belgian cuisine, prepared by the visiting chefs, who were ably assisted by the Spanish Court hospitality team.
Belgian cuisine traditionally prizes regional and seasonal ingredients. Ingredients typical in Belgian
dishes include potatoes, leeks, grey shrimp, white asparagus, Belgian endives and local beer, in
addition to common European staples including meat, cheese and butter. Belgians typically eat four
meals a day, with a light breakfast, medium lunch, a snack, and a large dinner.
Here are some highlights of the epicurean experience enjoyed in an intimate setting.
