Last weekend my wife and I stopped at Findlay Market, my first time through Ohio’s oldest continuously operated public market. We arrived around 11 in the morning and walked through a mostly deserted market, which I think is a rarity here. We bought some turkey from Silverglades and some sausages from Kroeger & Sons, but the real winner from our shopping was the waffle I had from Taste of Belgium.
I ordered the waffle topped with strawberries and whipped cream, but the sweet waffle doesn’t need to be topped with anything. The waffle is a Liège waffle, named after a city in Belgium where it was invented. This style of waffle uses a special sugar in the dough that caramelizes on the outside when baked. The flavor of the waffle from Taste of Belgium is very close to that from The Liege Waffle Factory that was available in our grocers freezer in Denver. Having a freshly made waffle of this style was glorious and I will definitely be back for more.
