WE LIKE :BADJAWE

It’s official — it’s our favourite beer!

And not because it’s from Liège! It’s a special beer, a pale ale (it exists in brown and amber, but we prefer it pale) which is ideal because it’s tasty and light. We haven’t taken advanced training in zythology, but our main argument is that we’ve already tasted quite a lot of beer (hic) and this is the one we prefer. We’re talking about it here because we’ve had it at all our drinks parties, barbecues and games nights this year (errrrr, we’re planning a mineral water tour next month)!

It’s on sale at our new favourite neighbour’s (and elsewhere): “Pied-à-Terre”, rue Saint-Rémy.


CULTURE : LIÈGE À PIED (LIÈGE ON FOOT)

Even people from Liège who think they know their city are fighting over this book — it’s out of stock all the time!

You will be guided step by step, as if the book were your travelling companion. Through anecdotes and shortcuts to unmarked paths, the book guides you from the town centre to the many bucolic, historical or present day discoveries that surround and enrich it. There are 7 routes that are sometimes a bit long for unseasoned walkers (pay attention to the walking time given), with the authors’ favourite destinations and interviews with a few people in each neighbourhood: we haven’t yet gone on all the walks but we devoured this guide.

You can also get it from Toutes Directions (which we love because it’s a travel-themed bookshop and because it’s next-door to the Beer Lover Shop… yes, we’ve decided to talk about beer throughout this Newsletter)!


WITH FAMILY OR FRIENDS :BEER HIKES

This is how to rally the troops!

We’ve found and tested the perfect guide for groups of friends torn between going for a walk or going for a drink. It’s an opportunity see some sights in a different way, walking through the magnificent rolling hills of Belgium to reach an abbey that brews a beer that you would be wise to taste.

We recommend that you buy this book from a bookshop that we love and you’ll soon understand why: Toutes Directions.


GOOD IDEA: “HEALTHY COOKING” WORKSHOPS

We loved and would recommend Catherine Nutrition’s healthy cooking workshops!

We now have plenty of ideas for savoury or “sweet-without-sugar” breakfasts, vitamin lunches and snacks for the little ones or for ourselves at work with recipes and tips that make life easier. We felt like we were spending our Thursday evenings and Wednesday mornings with a great friend who lets everyone taste their concoctions.

Go (here) to say hello to her from us.


RECIPE: HOMEMADE SPREAD

This is how to impress everyone at breakfast in a jiffy!

Make your spreads yourself! One with speculoos biscuits (you need speculoos, unsweetened concentrated milk, honey, cinnamon and a pinch of salt) and one with chocolate (you need chocolate, butter and sweetened concentrated milk)! That’s all! Success guaranteed.
