Ghent in Five Tastes
Ghent has its own cuisine unique to the city
The Tierenteyn-Verlent mustard isn’t sold in grocery stores or duty free shops, if you want it you have to visit the store yourself. It’s freshly made without preservatives, so you have to keep it refrigerated and you have to eat it quickly. Even kept cold this unique sauce only lasts about six months. Since the initial shock of the mustard, I’ve come to enjoy it and even crave the sharp taste. Even if you’re not a mustard fan you have to at least try this distinctive taste that truly is a part of Ghent culture.
