Stad aan de Stoof
Free delivery from € 25,00 *
The city of Antwerp has a particularly rich variety of local culinary specialties. The 'Bolleke', a beer by brewery De Koninck, the golden liquor 'Elixir d'Anvers' and the crunchy 'Antwerpse Handjes' are known by many, but there is plenty more to discover.
Stad aan de Stoof provides an overview of the most outstanding local produce from Antwerp and its neighboring municipalities, such as 'Seefbier', 'Roggeverdommekes', 'Mokatines', 'Filet d'Anvers', 'grijze frut'... and tells the story behind these special products. Every cheese, coffee, meat or drink has its own remarkable history, the story of passionate people on a mission. The recipes in the book are an invitation to make these age-old products come to life again in modern day cuisine by giving them a contemporary twist. A liquor with a dull image such as Elixir d'Anvers is suddenly fashionable when mixed into a trendy cocktail such as the 'Antwerp Wallbanger'.
Stad aan de Stoof also highlights the interaction between urban and rural areas in terms of food production and supply. Contrary to what one would believe, globalization has not diluted this relationship but only strengthened the appreciation of fresh locally grown produce and its fantastic culinary potential.
