Belgium is well known for their French-fries (don't know why they call them "French"?). The fries are not only famous for their superb quality but also because anywhere in our country you can buy them with mayonnaise and casserole or any other snack at almost every street corner. Many families but also most company and school restaurants serve French-fries at least one day a week

- dessert (yoghurt, pudding, fruit, ice-cream, etc.)

-we are very famous for our Belgian Chocolates "Pralines"(10)

I also want to thank our local Butcher "Van Helvert" in Brecht for  offering me the pictures of all the meat.
