What you'll do

Upon arrival, you will be greeted with a nice glass of wine (or beer) and get to know each other. We will then put on some nice music and my husband Gernot and myself will teach you how to cook a typical Belgian dish. It can be: 'Chicons au gratin' with mashed potatoes and a nice fresh salad', mussels with Belgian fries, meatballs in tomato sauce with fries, 'waterzooi with chicken' ... If you are a group of 6 people, you can choose amongst the different dishes we propose. Otherwise, we will propose a dish to all participants and choose the favorite As we will be doing everything from scratch, the tasks will be divided between all the guests. Our goal is to teach all of you the wonders of home cooking! Then; 'le moment suprême'; we will all sit down in our cosy living room near the fire place and enjoy our hard work. During the dinner, we will also teach you some basic principles of wine tasting. Looking forward to hosting our first guests and getting to know all of you!
