Ironically, London's best restaurant is Belgian. Aug. 18 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Namely, Denis and Andre's Belgo in Covent Garden. Unfortunately, I've found nothing like it back home. Fortunately, there's Belgo the cookbook. Equal parts moules, frites and beer, I've been able to bring Belgo home. Their book explains all: where mussels come from, which to pick, which to avoid and of course how to cook and eat them (with a discarded shell).
And while the recipes are quick, simple and delicious, this is more than a cookbook. There's also a beer hunter's guide, Belgian music suggestions while cooking, Belgian jokes and plenty of silly photos of the restranteurs. Essentially a primer on the Belgian good life.
Did I mention it's beautifully designed?

Cook Belgian frites at home & choose the right Belgian beer! Dec 4 2000
By brian@livinginbrussels.com - Published on Amazon.com
This book offers a humorous look at the history of the Belgian frite (french fry) as well as offering traditional Belgian recipes. You will learn how to pick the right Belgian beer to accompany your food, as well as how to prepare your own Belgian frites! And if you are in Brussels, they even give you suggestions on where to find the best, and the most unique, Belgian foods! Overall a great book!

More than mussels Oct. 25 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Fun to read; even more fun to cook from. This cookbook will send you scurrying to find Belgium beers to add to stews and desserts.

Quirky yet Accurate; Fresh yet Authentic Oct. 22 2005
By Kirstin Rogers - Published on Amazon.com
The Belgo Cookbook may seem dubious from its cover, which was deliberately designed to buck the cookbook trend. This book is about as comprehensive, informative and easily digestible (not withstanding also authentic) as one could hope. I lived 4 years in Belgium and this really brought me back. And yes, it is a full tour de force of Belgian attitudes, food, beers, festivals locales, events, tastes, chocolate and more... vive L'Atomium!
Good, and humourous, Belgian cookbook that works for home cooking May 18 2012
By Michael A. Duvernois - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Too many restaurant cookbooks fail to adapt well to home cooking, too long preps, non-standard pantry contents, and commercial scale cooking gear. This one nicely matches up the Belgian cooking at Belgo in Covent Garden (London) with genuinely home-doable recipes. My Mom, who is Belgian, approves of the book. So it's hard to argue against the authenticity. Plus it's a fun, beautifully designed cookbook. Enjoy the mussels, break out the beer, and, well, mostly enjoy...
