Hello everyone. I was reading a bit over here and enjoyed what I saw.
I live in Flanders the dutch-speaking part of Belgium, at just a 10 minutes drive from France.
Retired advertising guy (age 60) with a passion for food.
Hello and let me add my welcome to Nicko's. I'm somewhat familiar with your region, having made several visits to Douai in the '80s and again in the late1990s. It's a beautiful region, and I always felt welcome wherever I went. I have a cookbook which focuses on foods of your regions (it's written in French). Hm... now that the weather is turning cooler, maybe it's time for Carbonnades a la Flammande..... . Chris, I have a recipe question for you, which I'll post in the Recipes forum.
