Belgium is a beer lover's paradise. With microbreweries everywhere, we found this quaint little two-man operation making the most unique ales. Caracole Brewery was a local favorite around Namur Belgium and a local chef used it in making superb escargot. Kevin Brauch ? The Thirsty Traveler

  • 4 to 5 cups chicken broth (you may make your own or use OXO cubes)
  • 2 medium onions, chopped
  • 3 carrots, chopped
  • 2 celery sticks, chopped
  • Parsley stems, plus extra, for garnish

Directions

Make chicken broth and set aside. In a large pot cook together onions, carrots, celery, parsley stems, and turnip. You will need approximately 4 cups of water. Add 1 tablespoon of butter, the bay leaf, and 1/2 teaspoon of thyme to the water. Cover and let simmer for 10 to 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.

At the last minute, add freshly ground pepper and place sprigs of rosemary, sage, and parsley as garnish on each plate.
