Over Christmas, my sister and I talked a lot about how organizing a holiday around food was a completely reasonable thing to do. I decided to treat my long weekend in Belgium as a test case and I can tell you that, while my cheeks are fuller than they were four days ago, it was an absolutely brilliant time and I can’t wait to eat my way through somewhere else.
We spent two days in Brussels and two days in Ghent. Brussels is a city that reveals itself slowly; I think living there is probably much more fun than visiting – which is saying something, because visiting was great.
