Perhaps cycling cannot satisfy your hunger? In which case, it’s time to fill your stomach. During the Ascension Weekend (18-21 May), both Antwerp and Ghent are organising a celebration entirely dedicated to culinary culture in their city centres. Gent Smaakt is a free culinary festival in the historic city centre. A tasty confluence of history, heritage and our food culture. Antwerpen Proeft means the same for Antwerp: a unique culinary journey of discovery, in the heart of the city. There is also plenty to discover outside of that weekend. Somewhere around the middle of April, the asparagus season takes off in our region. This delicious regional product is traditionally grown underground, to prevent photosynthesis. This means that these delicacies retain their snow-white colour and their sweet soft, rich taste. Asparagus Flemish-style is hard to resist.
