I know, it’s been ages since I blogged. So much theatre stuff has been happening lately! But I’m here now with an edition of “Poirot Gourmet” that I’ve been meaning to post for awhile (I’ve got a couple posts in reserve). Just in time for Valentine’s Day!
I recently found a box of Belgian waffles (Mountain Waffle Co.) that specify Liège as their origin. Not to be passed up!
Toast them up, add some imported Sirop de Liège (one of the region’s specialities) and a glass of orange juice, and you’re in gourmet breakfast heaven! There is so much sugar in this picture, it is not difficult to understand why Poirot had a sweet tooth. 😉 Liège waffles have pearl sugar and are HEAVY– you can eat just one and be full!
Did you know that Brussels waffles are significantly different from the Liège kind? Here’s an interesting blog post about it.
