What you'll do

First you will be welcomed with an original beer cocktail! While tasting, I will explain you about pairing beers, look, aroma and taste. You than will be invited to enjoy special created dishes with high quality local and fresh ingredients that will be paired with the best of Belgian beers. The search is not for a strong beer to overshadow a delicate dish, nor for a light beer to disappear when accompanying a flavorful dish. The objective is balance. We will examine how the flavors of the ingredients & the beer interact or influence each other. Not interested in? Than you just enjoy the dishes with the fantastic beers as a perfect "must have done" meal in Brussels. You will not leave our table in a hungry or thirsty way!!

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!
