Belgian Recipes


The cuisine of Belgium has an international reputation for offering high quality but large portions. Indeed, some people say that Belgian cuisine offers the quality of French cuisine but withe portion sizes of German cuisine.

Popular Belgian dishes include:
  • Stoemp - Mashed potatoes, possibly mixed with other mashed root vegetables. Bacon and cream may be added, and dish is often flavored with herbs and spices.

  • Konijn in Gueuze (French: Lapin á la Gueuze) - Rabbit cooked in Gueuze (a sour Belgian beer).

  • Vlaamse stoofkarbonaden (French: Carbonnades Flamandes) - A traditional Flemish beef-stew, cooked in beer.

  • Viszooitje (French: Waterzooi de poissons) - A fish stew (bass, carp, eel or pike are all commonly used), also containing vegetables (carrots, leeks, and potatoes) as well as butter, cream and eggs.

  • Kippenwaterzooi (French: Waterzooi de poulet) - Another type of stew. This stew is very similar to Viszooitje, but made using chicken instead of fish.

  • Paling In 't Groen (French: Anguilles au vert) - Eel cooked in a mixed herb soup.

  • Mosselen-friet (French: Moules frites) - Mussels and French fries.
As well as the above dishes, Belgium is also known for cold meat products from the Ardennes (especially paté), its beers, chocolate, and of course waffles.

Product Description:
  • A cookbook with a difference!
  • Not only will you find lots of mouth-watering recipes for traditional Belgian dishes, but also fascinating anecdotes about the nation's
  • Illustrated with beautiful photography by Diane Hendrikx

What's Cooking in Belgium is a culinary tour of the country with each chapter containing two classic recipes built around a theme. The themes include specific foods, Belgian landscapes, regions, cultures, lifestyles, and special occasions, all of which provide a rich portrait of the terrific flavors and wonderful versatility of Belgian cuisine.

Belgium's mercantile heritage has provided many different culinary influences to Belgian cooking. Dutch, German, & French obviously, but spices from Africa & the East are also present in numerous recipes. Belgian food combines the finesse of French cuisine with the generous portions of the Germans.

In beer drinking Belgium, hop shoots -the first buds of the hop plant and only available for six weeks- are considered the most expensive vegetable in the world!

Having talked to chefs and farmers, historians and curators up and down the country, Anna Jenkinson and Neil Evans have put together a book of recipes and stories that explain Belgium's love affair with food. They traveled from the North Sea coast in the West to the Ardennes forest in the East and learned the secret to making Belgian chips, when the first chocolate praline was made, and how the Spanish, French and Germans have all influenced Belgian cuisine over the centuries.

Illustrated with beautiful photographs by Diane Hendrikx, this book could live in the kitchen or on your coffee table.

Calling all chocolate lovers!

Your body is your temple. We cannot say this often enough.

So worship, nourish and satiate it with healthy designer chocolate cakes you can make with this recipe.

They can be made with only healthy ingredients just for you by you:

1. Which you can consume guilt-free
2. Lactose-free
3. Gluten-free

10. Vegan
11. Which you can have even if you're on a weight loss diet
12. And ridiculously easy-to-prepare in 1 to 2 minutes

You don’t need to be a gourmet chef. (You don’t even need cooking skills really.)

You don’t need to waste hours on baking a cake which may or may not come to your taste while spending your precious time which you can utilize for far better things like having fun with your family. Baking a cake sometimes takes a ridiculous amount of time and takes special equipment. Most people have the tools at home, but you still need to know how to use them to bake. You don’t need to know how to bake with an oven with this little gem of a recipe.

And guess what? If you’re worried about your own, your family’s or your guests’ food allergies, you can relax. As long as you take care not to cross contaminate, this recipe is:

1. Gluten FREE
2. Lactose FREE
3. Vegan

The 15 variants also take other food allergies into consideration: soybean, nuts, etc.

You’re probably wondering as I did whether or not this cake still tastes good after omitting all the ingredients you usually see on the packaging like flour, milk and eggs. IT DOES. It is just so amazing.

Not only does it taste divine, it also:

1. Helps you to reduce total cholesterol and increases good cholesterol.
2. Your cake will be packed with antioxidants, flavanols, protein, dietary fiber, vitamins and minerals.
3. If you are diabetic, NO PROBLEM, there is a variant included that should still be delicious for you. You can still have your cake and eat it too without worrying about blood sugar by following our simple guidelines in making the cakes.
4. If you are on a strict diet, there is a variant here for you too.

Usually chocolate cakes will burden your waistline and make you put on some pounds.

But your cake will actually help you to lose weight. The key to this are the ingredients.

You can enjoy these delicious desserts without a care in the world.

These heavenly designer cakes you can make at home are ridiculously rich and great for chocolate lovers. These cakes can be made just to your taste by you.

If you are like me and you have been diagnosed with food allergies, this cake is the answer to all your prayers for a delicious, guilt-free dessert.

When you make a cake fitting to your taste buds, you will lose interest in buying any more cakes from the bakery. Because you know your cake is the best. They will never come up to your standards because you know your cake tastes far better than any cake you will buy, you will save tons of money and impress friends and family members with your baking skills.

These recipes from Belgium using only healthy ingredients are all yours to ENJOY!
