Brussels Is Packed With Events and Entertainment This September
From 13th to 16th September, the “Brussels Restaurant Festival” will bring together over 30 restaurateurs from the Capital region’s 19 municipalities for four days where they will share their know-how and their passion for good ingredients with an audience of food lovers. As part of Brusselicious 2012, themed villages (the Brussels village, the international village, the Asian village, the Mediterranean village and the “Cuisines of the World” village) will be where all the city’s specialities and the distinctive features of eating out in Brussels will come together. The taster menus dished up by the chefs will be available for discounted prices (6 Euros), in the form of taster dishes prepared onsite.
As well as the food-related discoveries, there is a varied programme of activities for young and old alike at the Bois de La Cambre, chosen to host the event because of its location and stunning expanses of lawn.
In the evening, the music of specially invited DJs and bands will ring out through the trees until 10pm, while the Wood and the Jeux d’Hiver will be hosting the after party on Friday 14th and Saturday 15th September. During car-free Sunday, families will be able to relish the EAT! Brussels festival from 11am until 8pm.
The goal is to show off a different side of Brussels; that of an eco, food-loving capital, a green city, that it’s a pleasure to walk around, a city to explore with all your senses. From Monday 17th to Sunday 23rd September 2012, in every corner of our beautiful old capital, restaurants will be striving to be ‘good, clean and fair’, offering one or more Slow Food dishes, products, menus, drinks or actions. Over 70 different venues (snack bars and healthy light refreshment outlets, tables d’hôtes and delis, community or social kitchens, local bistros and big, Michelin-starred restaurants, wine bars and pubs) will be taking part in this Week of Taste, promoting the best that local producers have to offer with seasonal, organic, farm-produced and artisan products.
The Taste Brussels event is based on the principles of Slow Food: sharing, the pleasure of good food and learning about taste, protecting the environment, defending biodiversity and food heritage and creating links between producers and consumers. The Brussels branch of the Slow Food movement, Karikol, organises foodie walks whereby visitors can see behind the scenes of artisan production processes that are usually not open to the public and find out about the region’s excellent honey. The organisation also puts on organic gardening lessons.
As part of Brusselicious 2012, VISITBRUSSELS is giving the perfect opportunity to enjoy a wonderful experience in a beautiful setting with family or friends. On the afternoons of Sunday 2nd, 9th and 16th September 2012, enjoy a different kind of piQniQ in one of our stunning parks: learn how to make bread, dance, or take part in a nature walk. Artisans, producers and food processers from every corner of Belgium will be sharing the fruit of their labour, grown using organic farming methods. Just pick a spot: at a table, on the grass, in a deckchair, in a tent, in the sunshine. Between March and December, whether you’re a local, a Belgian or a visitor from further afield, take the chance to enjoy one of the tours organised by the 5 associations who are members of Voir et Dire Bruxelles. A number of the tours are put on in association with some of the year’s flagship events (Brussels and the comic strip, Magritte).
