My first TasteCast: Taste of Belgium

First off, full disclosure: I'm a member of the Cincinnati chapter of TasteCasting. From time to time, we visit a local food biz and write up a review in exchange for some free samples. And no one tells us what to say! Yea! (If you're interested in joining up, let me know.)

Okay, now take a minute to look at these pictures from Taste of Belgium and take a guess as to how my lunch hour went today.

Ahh. Want to look at them again?

I've been to Findlay Market's Taste of Belgium before, for calzones and their delicious Belgian waffles. What I didn't know before this visit was that they also make their own pizzas (with beer in the crust, mm), savory and sweet crêpes, and desserts like danishes.

I think the crêpes were the biggest surprise to me-- a great lunch option I hadn't considered before. We tried the classic ham-egg-Gruyere cheese combo as well as a new Reuben combination they've created. I'd recommend them both. I'd super-recommend the lemon-and-lavender-sugar blend for dessert-- but we all know how I feel about lavender sugar, don't we?

Did you know that Findlay Market is open during your workday? Every day but Monday (hours on Findlay's site). While we were there, business was pretty... dead. Tons of sitting room, tons of open parking, and tons of vendors with deliciousness to sell. (Not just waffles, but that's a great place to start!) If you're like me and you're used to be elbow-to-elbow on Saturday mornings, try this out and see if it's not 100% as awesome with infinitely more breathing room.

Yum! I'm going tomorrow for Breakfast! I usually go to Aunt Flora's, but I might have to try something new!

Thank you guys for the comments! Revisiting this post is making me massively hungry for waffles again.

Does the Taste Casting still exist?

If so, how could a cincy blogger get hooked into that gig?

redrabbit said...

Unfortunately I think Taste Casting was closed down! I only got to attend one event!

Disappointing, but I kind of thought that might be the case from the dead link.

Thanks for the response and for the enjoyable blog.
