Best Culinary Experience in Belgium

(by Marguerite Johnson) 

Last year in Brussels, La ruche qui dit oui received 50,000 orders for locally produced food, including my weekly orders after I registered during the first lock-down. It has been the best culinary experience in Belgium for me since the lockdown.

There is no obligation to order regularly, nor any minimum amount. I order food online and a few days later, go to the pick-up point near home (or ask for a delivery) and come back with eggs of “happy hens that run outside”, juicy boudin blanc, vegetables that produce creamy soup, etc. The dairy products, cheese, chocolate, croissants, fruit, meat, vegetables and more are all sold by the producer directly to the consumer. On average, the food has only travelled 28km. 

It is a wonderful feeling of empowerment to support local producers and reward their hard work. I highly recommend La ruche qui dit oui, that exists all through Europe. More info at https://laruchequiditoui.be. Bon appétit!
