Undoubtedly, you have heard about Belgian waffles before. However, have you ever heard about the legendary waffles that were made by our grannies – bomma’s in Dutch – and inspired by secret recipes, handed down from one generation to another for hundreds of years? Whether or not you are familiar with this toothsome legend, “Wafeltjes van ons Bomma” offers you a variety of scrumptious guilty pleasures that are made on the spot by your very own Waffle King, Wes.
