Semaine de la Frite

Nov 05, 02:17 PM

It's the eleventh edition of the Semaine de la Frite, a week during which Belgium celebrates its peerless chips and the over five thousand chip shops all across the kingdom. BPost is selling a special edition of five stamps which come on a sheet that, when folded, becomes a chip truck, each stamp in the image of a different historic chip shop. There's a show on at the Folklore Museum (MuFIm) of Tournai called Frietkot Stories, and the Home Frit Home Museum in Brussels is exploring the history of the food. Maureen Coster of the Walloon Agency for the Promotion of Quality Agriculture (Apaq-W) gives us the details including how to win a limited edition frites T-shirt.
