Weekend Delights on the 18th and 19th May

Encounters kitchen has a special guest pastry chef for one weekend only (the 18/19 May). Johan’s cakes include Vlaai Pie from Limburg that now has the protected geographical indication (also known as the PGI label). After more than seven years of sweet-talking, Limburg pie from Dutch and Belgian Limburg has gained official recognition as a protected regional product by the European Union.

Limburg pie, commonly known as vlaai, is a sweet, golden-brown baked delight comprising a crème pâtissière filling generously topped with streusel (crumbly topping). It comes in a variety of fruity flavours, including cherry, apricot, strawberry, and plum.
