Top 5 Belgian inspired food (from Flemish bloggers)

Brussels Food Friends is a truly international group of foodies. We comes from different parts of the world, speak different languages … yet understand each other around the international language of food.

This week I wanted to share with you a slice of Flemish food love. And how better to emerge ourselves into October than with Belgian inspired food? Our top 5 this week come all from our Flemish friends and are written in Flemish.

For aperitif, Photo-Copy makes fancy parsnip toasts.

La Cucina invites us to try out a cucumber soup with shrimps.

Claudia’s Keukenspot inspires us for the main course and gives the traditional mussels an Asian twist and makes curry mussels.

Baked Louie’s creates a Belgian flag pie … which I think should be a dessert hit with everyone.

And of course let’s not forget the drinks. Teveel Koekboeken takes a variation on beer and makes gingerbeer cocktails.

  1. I have a diary/notebook of my great grandmothers written in Flemish where she kept note of recipes that caught her interest. It is not very long but needs a cook to decipher it. My father speaks Flemish, but over the years it has grown weaker and I don’t think he has time to translate it. My great grandmother lived through both wars and I think the notes were taken over that time. Is there anyone who is a food blogger who is interested in translating it ? I also have a recipe and pudding bowls for Kemseke Pudding (not sure how to spell the Flemish name) Made with candied orange peel, rusks and peperkoek as the star ingredients.
