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!

Kookeet 2014, a culinary experience!



Sabine Goethals, well known from several popular food-and-cooking tv shows, hosted the cooking demonstrations.  Here together with Olivier Monbailliu from restaurant La Tâche, during a mostly funny and much appreciated demonstration. The Sicilian cannelloni were superb! Thank you, Olivier!

Fiesta in Ghent!


They are finished, the "Gentse Feesten", one of the biggest fiestas in Europe. Often spectacular, but more spontaneous and much sweeter in those side streets forgotten by the mainstream public.

Belgium-Russia: 1-0!


Not being very interested in soccer, we decided anyway to enjoy the "ambiance" on 't Zand, a square were they had a giant screen and 12.000 very enthousiast soccer fans. The winning goal was made in the last minutes and we all partied into the night!

A little American house in Flanders fields.






One can find this little treasure at the Memorial Museum in Zonnebeke; one of the many little prefab houses donated by the United States to help those who lost their home due to the war. I think it dates from the early twenties, and it got even severly damaged during a wwii bombing.
