Elderberry smell

Your father smells of elderberries, your mother smells of elderberries, in fact all your house smells of elderberries. The elderberry is in full blossom and many homes around are preparing the traditional soft drink specialty.

Must in the family

Crushing the grapes into must (AKA wine making) is a family thing: mother, father, son, everybody get to work and each has his own things to do. Here it looks like the father is in the advantage.

Must time

Is autumn, the season for grapes to get ripe. The wides use for the grapes is wine making, but before the fermentation they become must, a wonderful drink full of sweetness and flavor. Best served with grilled pastrami.

Brussels

Trying to document my trip in Brussels at FOSDEM, some photos with food and drinks are in order.

One of the things Brussels is know for is its beer and bars, like Delirium Cafe, a place keeping the world record for having available 2004 types of beer in January 2004:

Of course, the beer is good and strong:

Another Belgian speciality is seafood, but I didn’t had any of this, just looked and shot:
