Eating this Belgian beef stew is like sitting in a pub, tucked away in a corner, surrounded by red leather booths, candles burned so low the wax threatens to pool onto the table, and the smell of wood, whiskey and rain all running together to create a familiar fragrance.
A local band plays on a small stage.
Someone in the back tries to sing along.
A few start swaying to the beat of the song, trying not to spill their warm beer.
Sounds of muffled laughter, clinking glasses, and raised voices ordering more food compete with the band.
Food can take you on the most fabulous adventure without ever leaving your kitchen!
