Delicious dining in Flanders
In the Rubens House you can admire the kitchen of the 17th century. Back then most cooking was done in the fireplace. With the help of a hearth chain, the cook could hang pots higher or lower. Sausages and fish would be hung to smoke on the mantelpiece. Fortunately, things are easier now.
Young and slightly older talent
