3 days in Brussels

Belgium is a bit of an interesting country. Consisting of Dutch (Flemish) and French regions and having both languages listed as official languages, both country’s influences are also noticeable in the culinary landscape.

Punch Lane

Valentine’s day. Some women love it and relish receiving flowers, chocolates and more. Some hate it, dismissing it as a load of commercial tosh. I would consider myself to be more in the second camp, generally eschewing the trend in favour of, you know, showing my partner I care about him on days other than […]
