Description: The cooking of most European countries is by now familiar to all Anglo-Saxon lovers of good food, with, perhaps, the notable exception of Belgian cuisine, for Belgium has long suffered from its proximity to its much-publicized neighbor, France. This book tries to remedy this situation.
To most foreigners, Belgian cooking is chips with mayonnaise or, mussels, and, like all generalities, this one bears little or no relation to reality.
As you read this book and the spectrum of regional Belgian cooking unfolds, an altogether different picture will come into focus -- that of a cuisine as rich and varied as that of any other European country with a tradition of fine food, a cuisine that offers an enormous range of specialties, from the velvety egg and cream sauces of Flanders to the fragrant game dishes of the Ardennes.
Condition: Good condition.
