Respect the waffle
Belgian people take their beers, their chocolate and their wacky political
system very seriously. If there is one thing that they take more seriously it’s
At Taste of Belgium, there is nothing we take more seriously than our waffle.
Each waffle is baked individually in a specialized cast iron press, just like they were centuries ago by master cooks in the city of Liège, Belgium. We have perfected an old family recipe, passed down for generations, to bring you the taste and authenticity of a true Belgian favorite.
Unlike other waffles, they are made from thick dough and a coarse Belgian beet sugar that caramelizes inside the waffle iron and gives it a delightful sweetness that you are sure to remember.
The secret to a good waffle is a good waffle iron.
We do not make a good waffle, we make the best waffle and our waffle deserved the best waffle iron.
After breaking a few, many, too many waffle irons, we decided to gather all those design flaws and limitations and build our own.
We lined up our connections of aluminum welders, metal benders, cast iron pourers and with the help of a genius designer friend, we built the absolute sturdiest, most reliable and definitely most expensive-ever-made cast iron waffle maker.
This is the only equipment we use to bake our waffle.
Taste of Belgium is working on two new exciting projects.
We are anxiously waiting for the market house to be built at the upcoming Friendly Market in Northern Kentucky, near Florence. We expect to be up and baking before the end of July 2013. This location will be similar to our Findlay Market and North market locations.
In late summer, early fall 2013 we will open a new Bistro on Short Vine near the University of Cincinnati, the Zoo and the various hospitals. The Bistro will be more bar-centric with a wide array of approachable Belgian and Belgianized food, and a focus on Belgian, Belgian-style and local beers.
