What you'll do
Join my cooking class and learn how to make an authentic Belgian meal! Together we’ll prepare first-quality mussels (bought at the fish wholesaler, not at the supermarket!), homemade french fries, and our typical Belgian mayonnaise. The cooking class will take place in a homely atmosphere. Together we’ll clean the mussels, make french fries using fresh potatoes, make mayonnaise for the fries, prepare a sauce for the mussels, fry the potatoes at different temperatures, cook the mussels, enjoy our meal with a local beer or a glass of quality white wine. Come along!
My first passion is to cook, read about food and discover new flavors. I avoid supermarkets and I buy seasonal and local ingredients in markets and specialized shops. My second passion is receiving people at home. I have been hosting students from abroad for 30 years now. Cooking for them and sharing my knowledge of food helped me in refining typical Belgian dishes and in explaining its history. Since 2012, about 700 travelers and expats from all over the world joined one of our (me and my co-host Iria) dinners of Belgian dishes, prepared with love!
