Flanders: The “Farm Party” attracts foie gras fans
In Bekegem, West Flanders, the 6th edition of the traditional party organized by the largest foie gras farm in Belgium attracted crowds last August.
This foie gras celebration takes place every Friday of August in the farm. Guests enjoy a variety of dishes featuring foie gras in a bucolic setting and a relaxed weekend atmosphere, facilitated by a keen trio of violinists. Visitors enjoyed a carriage ride to admire ducks while enjoying various specialties concocted by different Chefs on the spot. Chef Edwin Vinke particularly delighted the guests with his recipe perfectly marrying langoustines and terrine of foie gras while the food truck delighted all lovers of grilled foie gras, smoked foie gras salads and desserts.
Filip Callemeyn, owner of the farm, is delighted every year to gather a wide public around foie gras: “The first party was organized to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the farm. The success of this party encouraged us to bring it back every year. ” Every summer, the “farm party” brings together around 500 guests delighted to enjoy foie gras in all its forms.
