Vol-au-vent

Hi everyone!

Vol-au-vent is a dish you can get in many Belgian restaurants.

But you can also make it at home. It’s a lot of work, but definitely worth the effort. And it freezes well too, so you only need to heat it when you come home after a long day at work. Eeasy peasy!

Happy cooking.
