Reviews about this book

  • Ms. Marmite Lover

    This book documents the "fragile heritage" of the remaining caf├ęs, the 'zageman', the savings cupboard, the dice and card games. Note the delightful touch of shiny 'wet' rings on the cover.

Publishers Text

A nostalgic ode to the most beautiful, traditional cafes in Belgium and their storiesFrom bestselling author and popular blogger of Miss Foodwise, Regula Ysewijn Food writer, photographer and graphic designer Regula Ysewijn runs the popular blog 'Miss Foodwise'.She is also the author of the book Pride and Pudding, a tribute to her obsession with British Culinary arts.The book was highly praised by Jamie Oliver and Fiona Beckett, to name a few noteworthy names. Her newest book, Belgian Cafe Culture, Regula presents an ode to Belgian popular culture. The book is the result of countless visits to traditional Belgian cafes, where Regula chatted with the locals took many beautiful photos. Throughout her book you can sense her regard for cultural ephemera: things, places, and livelihoods all in danger of fading into the past. Regula wants you to know that these traditional Belgian cafes are much more than the brick and mortar that holds them together; they can be the epicenter of a true community, standing strong even when their walls crumble and their decor ages, as they wait for the moment when the out-of-fashion becomes fashionable again.
