Culinary Corner: Viking’s Belgian Waffles
Rub the sleep from your eyes, shrug on your robe and slide on your slippers because breakfasts on the balcony are back on the agenda. We’re looking forward to taking in the day’s new view with fresh black coffee and a stack of waffles dripping in syrup or piled with strawberries. This Viking Belgian waffle recipe is a taste of what’s to come and it’s got Saturday morning written all over it.
