It’s Monday, the week has just started, and many people in Brussels are already looking forward to this weekend. Why? Well, the sixth edition of the Eat! Brussels, drink! Bordeaux festival is coming up!
From the 7th to the 10th of September, Brussels’ Park will host an incredible festival, that puts together the multifaceted gastronomic scene of the Belgian capital and the rich wine experience and tradition of the French city. During the four days, the citizens will be able to enjoy the nice atmosphere of the park -which is always pleasant, especially if some sun pops out- and delicacies from the region. The festival, in fact, will host several stands with chefs from various restaurants in Brussels: you will be able to find your favourite ones from all around the city and even to discover some new spots. Plus, you’ll be able to pair up your go-to dish with a nice glass of French wine!
The festival wants, in part, to recreate Bordeaux’s “Wine Festival”, with stands of different producers, different regional origins and different types of wine. To have a more complete experience, buy some “wine passes” and taste the delicious wines exposed: try some sips, study the aftertastes and find your next favourite bottle.
If you would like to learn more about wine, attend one of the main workshops available! They will give useful information on how wine is produced, which are the main differences in grape varieties, how the production of wine works and, of course, how to properly taste wine and how to pair it up with food.
Not a fan of wine? No problem! There will be a Duvel worshop, in which the experts will speak about breweries, special beers and the link between beer and gastronomy and each participant will get the opportunity for a tasting. Still looking for something more? Check out the cooking workshops: learn some new recipes from famous chefs and enjoy them in the park after!
Don’t miss the Eat! Brussels, drink! Bordeaux festival: it always is a nice occasion to meet with friends and family and enjoy some great food and wine in a pretty nice spot in Brussels.
