On Sustainable Gastronomy Day Belgium celebrates the art of preparing and serving delicious food as a cultural expression of the natural and cultural diversity in the world. Belgium is blessed with more than a hundred Michelin starred restaurants dotted throughout the country and delicious, fresh meals are very much part of their cultural identity.
Belgium’s capital Brussels is one place where one can find a large number of talented and passionate chefs, who feel very strongly about creativity, innovation and sustainability. It also hosts an annual festival that showcases the very best artisan beer breweries during the BXLBeerFest in August.
In the north of Belgium, in Flanders 53 top chefs under age 35 known as Jong Keukengeweld (Flanders Kitchen Rebels) help to showcase the passions and art of new and upcoming Flemish gastronomy talent. Next year, Flanders will also host the 6th edition of the prestigious World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) World Forum on Gastronomy Tourism.
In Wallonia, the Southern region of Belgium, Génération W gathers more than twenty great Walloon chefs and some 130 producers, craftsmen and local artists, customers and gastronomes. They give priority to local products, use of techniques that value and respect the terroir, celebrate the transmission of knowledge and promote the independence of spirit in developing new gastronomic creations.
Belgium as a nation may have been dominated by its progressively prominent neighbours yet the provincial cooking is sufficient to allure any genuine voyager to this perfect nation. Belgium has been fairly well known for its lousy nourishment however Belgian sustenance isn’t only a blend of mouth-watering dishes or shoddy nourishment; it is a wonderful mix of the sustenance styles of France, Germany, and the Netherlands.
The novel sustenance makes it reason enough for anybody, particularly diehard foodies, to design an excursion to this paradise of taste buds! All things considered, Belgium food is made remembering its flavour as opposed to its look.
