    Ruth Van Wearebeek's Everbody Eats Well in Belgium Cookbook might be a place to start. It's out of print, but I've found and bought copies online.

    With Ruth's permission, I've been slowly transcribing some of her recipes and posting them here. I've created a public cookbook:

    If you've got a special request, let me know. I'll check her book and post the recipe, if she has one. (There's more about Ruth in my profile page.)

    Another place to explore is Vanberg & DeWulf's website:

    V&D import Belgian ales to the U.S., but preach that great beer deserves great food. You'll find recipes and and all sorts of other things Belgian on their site.

    Hope this is a helpful start.

    Yep, Taylor in Belgium saw this one! LOL, been out of the loop lately.
    As for finding something in English anything for a recipe book, that's like finding hen's teeth. Thankfully I have learned the language and buy the Dutch cookbooks and do that routine now.
    Good ol' SOS Piet has a few good books out with very simple recipes to translate. I am afraid I would need an ingredient before I would even know where to start looking for and translating recipes. For example, chicken, I have a flemish cookbook with 100 chicken recipes. Baked goodies, I have several books on pastries and breads...Coluryts cookbook collection is pretty easy to translate for soups, pre plates, seafood, beef and pork.
    Just my opinion and experience here, most of the dishes are simple like farmers would eat. On the flip side, very little is German influenced but the French kitchen is popular.
    And forgot the most interesting cookbook of all..Ons Kookboek put out by the Catholic Womens group..with recipes that I am sure have been out since great grandma made them. I managed to pick up the 1972 edition in a thrift store and received the latest one in 2000 when I finished my first year Dutch. They are considered the "bible" of the daily cooking.
