Despite the fact that we live in England, we keep very close friends in the countries where we lived and especially in the countries where we have our families.
That’s why we like to have regular dinner parties in these countries during our visits.
In Belgium we are very lucky because often we have lovely friends who organize dinner parties for us, so we are very spoiled because not only do they invite people we know and appreciate, but we have to arrive as guests without having to do more! How spoiled we are !
But we are very lucky for another reason. It is that when we are in Belgium my parents-in-law lend us their home to make dinner parties ourselves too! It is extremely generous of them and obviously I try to give them back their home the next day in the same state as before!
So last weekend we had the pleasure of welcoming some friends we see very little off because life has led us in different directions.
How to do so if we have a day to prepare everything and we want to enjoy our passage in Belgium too.
Everything is in the organization!
For our dinner party we chose to have a raclette! Little cooking and lots of activity and interaction!
But, when we do a Raclette I prefer to have a big aperitif that serves as a starter at the same time, to avoid already sitting before the heating raclette machines.
My name is Caroline. I am half Austrian and half German and I live with my French husband and 3 sons in London.
A huge pleasure of mine is cooking and baking and I love having people over for dinner and sharing my food.
As I am very much into trying recipes I have discovered that sharing them gives me even more joy!
Some lovely friends and also my husband have suggested for me to start writing a blog and share my passion for food and also for my countries with those who are interested.
So here we go. These are my Kitchen adventures, be they just day to day recipes or dinner parties..
Here is my MY KITCHEN DIARY
