I am going to a bbq on Friday night. The hostess is a great cook and I wanted to surprise her with a lovely summer pudding, a new take on the classic tiramisu could be good or somehting else. Thanks for your suggestions.

I have heard there is a place in Brussels where you can experience dining in total darkness, if anyone has anyone heard of it or have any details for me I would be very grateful

Can anyone tell me where I can buy this? I am fed up of poor quality supermarket stuff and need to find something a bit special for a party I am catering for this weekend. Thanks in advance.

Does anyone know where I can buy hot cross buns from please? The only ones I saw had already been frozen and therefore had a 4 day shelf life!

Does Belgium celebrate the epiphany on the 6th with a special cake like over in France? If so what is it?

..., a friend of ours accompanied her son, to sell at the local Christmas Village market. (Namur) Don't know if the idea was new, but they decided to change the traditional "red hot wine" to a "hot port" ! Serving both…, the Aldi port outshone the wine ! Later on in the evening and running short of port, they progressively mixed the two…, and the result apparently, was delicious ! You can buy red wine over here that's already prepared with cinnamon, sugar and all the other ingredients…, all you have to do is heat ! But if you want to sweeten it up a little without too much sugar, mix a 50/50 red wine and port. The result will be a delicious, all-winter-round warmer. Note…, most red wines used for this purpose are French and extremely acidic ! (either too young or simply bad quality…, as usual) But these cheap wines mixed with port, eliminates the acidity and creates a great outdoor Santa ambiance. PS I'm a jeweler and I don't work for Aldi !!!
