Every Sunday pistolets

On a Sunday morning in Belgium it is a tradition that most of the families eat pistolets. And other traditions is that the man of the house is the one that for once in the week has to stand in a queue at the local bakery to get them.


A pistolet is a small crusty bread made from flour, yeast, salt, milk or water, and sometimes butter or olive oil. The pistolets are cut open and widely spread with delicatessen, cheese and different kinds of meat from the local butchery, another thing the man of the house has to take care off.

So next time when you are in Belgium on a Sunday and you see men standing on the street in a queue, you will know where they are after.
