I'd appreciate receiving any commentary on Parkeuval, the Rotterdam three-star. (It's a easy train ride from, say, Brussels and could presumably be made part of an itinerary with Comme Chez Soi, Bruneau and De Karmeliet at Bruges).
This classic should be in every Southern woman's repertoire. A moist, delicious Chocolate-Mayonnaise Cake pleases crowds of all ages, and is the perfect dessert to bring to a neighbor, to a potluck, or to a summer party.
Summer is in full swing, which (hopefully) means trips to the park or the beach. If you’re taking a picnic along, you should know a few food safety rules so you can pack, transport, and eat your meal without the threat of food poisoning. Liz Weinandy
