3 course Flemish Home Dinner
What a privilege and a pleasure it was to spend an evening in the excellent company of Annemieke and Filip. Both are highly knowledgeable local guides, and two of the nicest people you will ever meet. Our prelude to dinner was a leisurely and informative walk that enriched my understanding of Bruges' history, dialect, art, and architecture. (There is so much more to appreciate about this city than its scenic beauty, outstanding though that is.) I was then warmly welcomed into a beautiful home that reflects the joy and kindness of its owners. Dinner was wonderful, a soul-satisfying Flemish menu that was perfect for a cold, clear November night. Annemieke and Filip prepared the many dishes with great care as to sourcing and technique. The wine, conversation, inspiration, and laughter flowed. As much I liked Bruges before, it was my evening with Filip and Annemieke that showed me what a truly special place this is. I highly recommend that you treat yourself to such an evening, as it is a memory you'll always cherish. Filip and Annemieke, my heartfelt thanks!
