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!

Elsie

My first passion is to cook, read about food & beer and discover new flavors by traveling. This resulted in achieving a Masterclass certificate in Beer & food pairing. When buying the ingredients I avoid supermarkets and buy seasonal and local ingredients at local markets and local specialized shops. My second passion is welcoming people, explaining the background and history of traditionnal dishes. I have been hosting students from abroad for 30 years. Cooking for them and sharing my knowledge of food helped us in refining typical Belgian dishes and in explaining its history. Since 2012, more than 1000 students, travelers and expats from all over the world joined one of our cooking classes or candlelight suppers of Belgian traditional dishes, prepared with love! We can't wait to welcome you!
