Publishers Text

At last, a book that reveals Europe's best-kept culinary secret: Belgium. From three-star restaurants-of which the country has more per capita than France-to the legions of opinionated, accomplished, home cooks, Belgium and the Belgian people are passionate about good food. Starting with a humble mussel, fried potato, simple chicken, or piece of chocolate, Belgians find a way-and always a surprisingly easy way-to make magic. As Belgians explain it, since one has to eat three times a day, why not make a feast of every meal?
