Taste of Belgium: typical Belgian food you should try

The cuisine of Belgium is a cuisine that is influenced by the French gastronomic culture but has been able to restore it, often in a very convincing and original way.

The evening plate, the main one and of family recollection, is generally a single dish to which a dessert is associated or at least a small appetizer, to complete the necessary caloric intake.

The proximity of the sea has allowed different variations with fish, but also game or cold cuts and patés, the latter coming from the Ardennes area, should certainly not be overlooked.

Belgium is considered by many to be a paradise for beer lovers thanks to more than 1500 original beers, drunk in special glasses, just to enhance and make unique the tasting experience. The position of privilege held by the nation is also confirmed by the fact that since 2016 the Culture of Belgian Beer has been registered in the UNESCO Intangible Heritage List.
