Thinking back of my home country Belgium, it has a beautiful bread tradition. Nothing like the baguette style, in Belgium we do country style, round big loafs with a double baked crust and rich dough in the middle. Sensational! Freshly baked a few times a day. Sliced, not toasted and a large amount of any kind of spread, cured meat or cheese on top. We call them “les Tartines”.
Every butcher or deli offers a huge variety of spreads. The Belgians name them “salades”.
While sailing in the Mediterranean Sea, I got inspired to the creation of this light chicken spread.
A tasty lunch or snack on watch. This spread will keep a couple of days in the fridge.
