Real Fine Food
BELGIUM, FRANCE & GERMANY
In Spring 2014, I went to hang out with a friend living in Leuven.
We took a train to Paris, hung out for a few days.
Another friend from Greece flew up and we grabbed her and a rental car at de Gaulle.
The three of us then headed across the countryside, staying in small and larger towns.
In Leuven (Belgium), I stayed with my friend and with the exception of a few of the nights, always had a kitchen on the road.
That way, I could hit up the local farmer's markets and shops and cook with the local offerings!
What a great time.
Loved buying local food - they have a farmers market several times a week.
Pastry from a local bakery, fruit, coffee. What could be better?
Vegetarisch! And organic = "Bio"
My friend's husband made this delightful little salad with local fennel, white beans and citrus.
There was such good small bites and wine on this train. I wish the ride was much longer.
yes. Just yes.
This was a tiny town about an hour or two south east of Paris. We hit a random little restaurant in a mostly shuttered for the night town. It was bland but fun.
I LOVED the coffee in Paris. It was always perfect. Not too strong. Very tasty.
An afternoon drive through the Black Forest. So beautiful.
And a bier. Of course.
We stocked up to cook a lot to save money and instead use funds to explore and such!
No additions of syrup or sugar needed. Fresh, hot, soft dough that melts in your mouth.
This was the first time I thought to request vegetarian before flying. Will do that from now on for flights with food! Much healthier offering.
