Ideas for a Belgium Themed Party

The first Belgian Grand Prix took place at the Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps in 1925, althought the course has been shortened considerably since then - the origianl track was 9 miles long. In recent years, the Belgian Grand Prix has been made famous as much for its unpredictable weather as anythig else, which often leads to some "interesting" driving conditions!

Food for a Belgium Themed Party

Belgian food has a reputation for being solid but bland. The country is perhaps best known for its beer, chocolate and pâté, and its cooking style has been heavily influenced by its nearest neighbours France, Germany and the Netherlands. A very popular dish - regarded by many as the national dish - is "moules-frites", mussels and chips/fries.

Drink for a Belgian Party

Without a doubt, beer is the drink of choice in Belgium, and what a choice! For a relatively small country, Belgium reputedly has more than 100 breweries producing around 450 different beers. Some are pilsners, like Stella Artois, and Jupiler. Most, however, are local beers, specialties of a region or city. Among the best known are Duvel, Chimay, Hoegaarden, De Koninck and Kwak.

You can search for Belgian beer at DrinkSupermarket.com, where there is a huge selection!

Another option is the local gin, or jenever. This is often served in very small glasses. Unfortunately, while Dutch jenever isn't hard to get hold of, the Belgian product seems to be harder to track down outside the country itself.

Coffee is also very popular in Belgium, where the café culture is well developed. Every street seems to have its own coffee shop, but many are traditional local businesses, not the big international concerns. In Belgium coffee is savoured and enjoyed slowly, often with a little sweet cake, biscuit or chocolate to bring out the flavour.
