While visiting Viroinval, south of the province of Namur, make sure to stop at the Madeleine and try a typical Walloon recipe: the escavèche, a fantastic fish dish.

Philippe Dumoulin and his two sons prepare several dishes from fish, trout or salmon rillettes for example, or the famous Escavèche de Chimay very popular in the area. So much an IPG (indication géographique protégée or protected geographical indication) has been requested. Here you can try a family recipe, based on the traditional one, served with either a white or brown sauce.

A very traditional dish

Very popular near Chimay, Virelles and Olloy-sur-Viroin, this dish is said to date back to when the region was occupied by the Spanish... in the 15th and 16th century.

Indulge in the famous escavèche, a fish dish typical of South Hainaut and Namur: "La Madeleine" has its own recipe!
