Very Spanish, very Galician and very vivid; Ferrol!!!
Street life in Ferrol (and the whole of Spain) is always very picturesque.

Kookeet 2014, a culinary experience II

It's nice to live in a regio with a gastronomy that belongs to the absolute world top. And every year it may show off its level during Kookeet, a festival of flavour and taste in the center of Bruges.
This year Kookeet found a new location on 't Zand, the ideal setting.

Several chefs, whether three stars or upcoming talent, gave -the often young- public the opportunity to enjoy their creations. And that for little money, compaired to what one normally pays in their restaurants.

Keeping some cutlery at hand!
