this is my brand new blog which will get full of Yummy Recipes.

Most of the recipes will be Flemish recipes, ie. from the region of Flanders, however, you might recognise some foods which you would class as food from another region, eg. pasta from Italy.

This only means it is a kind of food which is frequently eaten in Flanders, if it is not a real Flemish food, it will always be indicated.
