Beer and food were made to go together... especially in Ghent! Beer and food have long been intertwined with the city's culture and tourists flock to Ghent to sample fantastic Belgian beers and try traditional cuisines, including waterzooi and stoofvlees (carbonnade). Local restaurateur, Bernard Baudewijns, firmly believes that the relationship between beer and food in Ghent is one of its most treasured traditions. Bernard’s restaurant, Steendam 66, specialises in “forgotten recipes from our grandmothers’ kitchens”, including stoofvlees and king crab dishes. When it comes to food pairing, Bernard recommends serving St. Stefanus Grand Cru with seafood like shrimps, mussels, scampi and king crab.
