Waffles, Moules-frites, the original potato fries and not to mention some of the most mouth-watering chocolate in the world, we have Belgium to thank for all of these culinary delights. Unsurprisingly, Belgium plays an important role in this year’s Speciality and Fine Food Fair (4-6th September, Olympia London), where over 37 countries are represented.

How To “BE Delicious”
In their own words “BE DELICIOUS was the brainchild of the food entrepreneurs Herwig Dejonghe and Christof Malysse. They met each other through a mutual enthusiasm for shrimp croquette, a quintessential Belgian dish with that delicacy from the North Sea, the grey shrimp, as its main ingredient.”
So what began as a mutual love of the shrimp croquette quickly transpired into a business plan: the ability to share Belgian cuisine with the rest of the world, particularly with Belgians living overseas. BE DELICIOUS now offer tailor-made food packages from “aperitif to dessert” which can be sent to you overseas so long as it complies with food import laws.
Whether you are hosting a “Belgian themed” office party, you are a Flemish expat association in London wanting to throw a lavish event or simply you want to impress you Belgian business contacts with food from their native country - these tailor-made packages are a great solution.
