Because I didn’t feel like talking to you about cooking today in view of the current events, I offer you a lighter ticket thinking very strongly of our Belgian friends or in transit, like me on Sunday evening, at the Brussels airport.

You are going on vacation in Greece and you don’t know what to bring back…

  • to your father who keeps the cat
  • to your mother who looks after the children
  • to your neighbor who waters the plants in your absence
  • to Mémé Colette, to your brother, your sister, to Tonton Michel, and to your best friends Fabienne and Krystel.

Are you on the verge of overheating?

Don’t panic, here are lots of ideas to answer the question: What to bring back from Greece?
