French fries in belgium

For many, fragrant sticks of fried potatoes in oil are their favorite treat. And Belgium is exactly the country where it is best to enjoy its indescribable taste.

Yakhni and meat rolls

Have you ever eaten delicious boiled meat? In order not to be hot, like in hashlam, but chilled, even cold? Yes, not boiled, but such that with a knife to cut and eat with pleasure?

It happens that in one place and at one time there occurs a luxurious abundance of products and the art of cooking begins to flourish, and cooks, competing with each other, begin to invent abundantly luxurious dishes. Yes, some recipes of such dishes take root among the people, get some fame and popularity. Later they try to cook such dishes either on holidays or in order to put dust in their eyes — that’s how we have a lot and we live well on our collective farm, glory to the CPSU.

And there are days, or even worse – times when groceries aren’t so good. And in the history of mankind, such times, alas, happened more often than times of abundance and prosperity. At such times, the Continue reading
