It’s the Most Wondeful Time of the Year!

Yesterday I went to the christmas market in Ghent. I just LOVE chistmas market ambiance! We tasted all sorts of yummy things.

We bought some real speculaas, not that fake sugary Lotus crap you buy in the stores. Jonas bought himself Gruut. Gruut is a beer that isn’t made with hops but with groats. They have 4 malts. Jonas already drank the amber colored one. It tasted peppery with a little sour orange taste in the finish.

The glass was also special. It has a small mirror and when you place the glass on the Gruut beer mat you see a blond woman in a black dress :).

Jonas his mother bought some misletoe to hang around the house. A lot of kissing going on!

At the moment Jonas and his mother are slaving away over a hot stove preparing rack of lamb with celeriac puree. I just love the spicy aromatic flavor of celeriac.
