Since, my husband & I don’t live in Brussels anymore we don’t go that often to Brussels 😦 We live in Mechelen, 30km north of Brussels, In Flanders.
But Today, I had some time to spend in my beloved Brussels. I took my camera with me to take some lovely pics. The sun was shining this morning at my home but when I arrived by train near Brussels, the sky was super dark & I heard thunder! Thunder, all true the night, promise to see Jesus in the morning light, take my hand, it will be alright, come on save your soul tonight! That Prince’s song goes through my mind! 🙂
This is one of the finest “real bakers ” in Brussels. Here, you can buy all different kinds of breads, pastries, fine tarts & filled sandwiches, all made fresh in this bakery & baked here too. The quality is excellent!
Later on, I savoured a lovely fruit tartlet. It was a strawberry & pistachio combo on a Breton shortbread. It was quite fabulous. Firstly,the dough underneath crumbled into your mouth, just like it should be! Secondly, on top of that, you had a layer of pistachio confectioner’s cream. Thirdly, on top of that were lovely red ripe strawberries & finally, on top, was a jam glaze, topped with extra crunchy fresh pistachio’s! The tartlet costed me: 4.50 Euros. That’s a lot of money! They have risen their prices up to nearly 1 till 4 Euros more than last year. But it is so worth it! 🙂
