Flemish stew ©Kris Jabocs

Flanders  is a gourmets paradise, boasting many Michelin star-rated restaurants. Flanders is particularly famous for waffles and fries.

Belgian fries are often eaten with mayonnaise or served with mussels or Flemish Beef Stew. Chicory or Belgian endive is a popular vegetable, as are, of course, Brussels sprouts. Seafood is plentiful and trout is fished in the rivers. Soups include waterzooi which is more like a stew. Beer features in a number of recipes.
