Sadie’s Gourmet Waffles Story……
Our Waffle delicacy was first introduced to us by Sadie Dupont, a delightful, energetic woman who has the ability to produce extraordinary culinary creations with the highest ingredients and an extensive knowledge of the original Liege, Belgium region specialties.
Our Liege Waffles have a caramelized exterior with a light buttery, sweet dough on the inside. This treat this is a special joy anytime of the day. This sensation is created by the "Pearl Sugar " we import from Belgium. Our waffles are rapidly becoming a culinary sensation thanks to Ms. Dupont.
Belgian families serve their waffles topped with fresh whipped cream, powdered sugar and sliced strawberries and tout their creation as a 'light, crispy and fluffy' alternative to the American waffle.
According to Sadie, Liege Waffles were originally called Brussels waffles — named for the Belgian capital, where they were a specialty, but she soon realized more people would want to know their exact origin.
What makes the waffles so good? Sadie cites special cast-iron griddles that heat up to 500 degrees. As soon as the batter touches the grill, it gets crispy on the outside and soft on the inside while melting the special pearl sugar encrusted in the dough. Normally most people will want to try a Liege Waffle the traditional way first to experience the sweet, buttery flavor in its natural form with only powdered sugar. Waffle lovers will then learn all the different ways to enjoy the “Liege Waffle”.
Waffles in the United States date back to the Pilgrims, who were familiar with them from time spent in the Netherlands, which has a similar waffle culture. During the latter part of the 18th century, 'waffle parties' were all the rage.
The recipe requires fresh, carefully prepped ingredients: pure vanilla, fresh yeast or self-rising flour, melted but cooled sweet butter, and eggs at room temperature, with egg whites added at the end.
But the exact recipe is our secret.
