We are spending a great weekend in Belgium. I think Ghent is a very beautiful city: small, cosy, full of young people and a lot of interesting cafés, bars and restaurants. I like it very much.
There is this very good restaurant in Ghent that I have been reading about and I really wanted to go there: The Pakhuis. The restaurant is big, bright and open as it used to be a warehouse. The atmosphere is really unique.
Tonight was a good opportunity to reactivate my bamboo steamer. I really love this thing and I believe that the food tastes much better than with using an electronic plastic steamer. It’s more fun anyways and it looks kind of cool. You can put it on any pot. The good thing with the two layer steamer which I have is that the flavours can circulate. This is especially interesting when mixing vegetables with meat or fish.
