Bistronomie guide Belgium

Bistronomy is the new thing(well, perhaps not that new) and hopefully here to stay cause it stands for a new approach of the food culture. It's the combination of a easy entry bistro with the culinary approach in the kitchen of a high-level restaurant. So all the goodies for a reasonable price, basically making it accesible for everyone with a foodie heart.

The book/site Bistronomie offers a guide trough the world of bistronomy in Belgium. Here you can find a restaurant with the label 'bistronomy' near you and following your budget.

Edition 2013 was launched 04/03/2013 in Antwerpen in the old De Koninck brewery. Read about it here:

Bone marrow in the oven

Simple, basic but oh so yummilicious and nutricious(no need to use words like fat, cholesterol.....) and very satisfying when prepared correctly.


  • 1 or 2 bones per person
  • Fresh thyme and rosemary
  • some oil
  • butter
  • Pepper and fleur de sel

Soak the bones in salted water for about 12 hours, draining and refreshing them +/- 2 times to remove excess blood. Clean them and dry them and put them on a oven plate greased with oil. Sprinkle some thyme and rosemary on them, some pepper and put a knob of butter on the bones.

Put them in a preheated oven(230°) for 20 minutes, take them out, dress on a plate, sprinkle some fleur de sel on the bones,take a small spoon and start spooning the rich,gooey inner center of the bones.Or just suck it out....(and burn your lips)

 Satisfaction guaranteed!!!!

And toss the bone at your dog if you have one.
