Description - .be Our Guest: The Ambassadors of Belgian Hospitality by Kathleen Billen
'Burgundian' Belgium has a rich gastronomical heritage and is therefore without a doubt a hospitable and lively centre of Europe. Diplomats and their spouses have the privilege of meeting people with all kinds of different interests and at the same time they convey Belgium's hospitality and culinary quality to other countries. For this book, the authors brought together several talented Belgians who are, each in their own way, ambassadors of Belgium. In .be Our Guest, the authors first guide us through the world of etiquette. Next, thirteen top chefs, among them Gert De Mangeleer, Bart De Poorter and Yves Mattagne, share their culinary passion and offer 55 delicious dishes, and Belgium's national specialities (beer, French fries, chocolate, cheese, diamonds and even wine) are discussed thoroughly. AUTHORS: Kathleen Billen is a lawyer specialising in fiscal matters. Together with her husband Johan Verkammen and their four sons, they move around in the diplomatic world. She has written a travel guide with Belgium's best places to eat. Dr. Kristin Van de Voorde-Heidbuchel is a dentist specialising in orthodontia. She is married to baron Willem van de Voorde, honorary secretary to the Queen and ambassador in Vienna and now Berlin.
