We love what we do on this blog, and hope you will too. Drop by every now and then, to check out our foodie and social bits and pieces. Or follow us on TwitterFacebook and Instagram. Interested to collaborate? Don’t hesitate to get in touch directly and email me Andreea Gulacsi, at andreea@onfoodandwine.com     

Our presence as micro-influencers on social media is:

Living in Brussels for 10 11 12 13 14 15 many (!) years, we got to discover both its good and bad sides. Moving away from home to study abroad, there were first the student parties, then the cocktail parties and finger food to proper dinner ‘entertaining’. 

What was initially a food (cooking) blog started in September 2005, changed to a blog focusing on the social and foodie scene of Brussels, its many restaurants, discovering hidden gems and of course our travels. Why? Because our lives evolved. We is myself, Andreea Gulacsi, and my other half. A baby boy joined us in 2014 … so our little party of 3 is now busy, busy, busy (re-)discovering Brussels

Right. Almost forgot. Yes, we do also l-o-v-e to travel and drink beer

welcome & enjoy !

PR and Avdertising Queries

We started blogging in September 2005. This makes On Food and Wine one of the most established expat foodie blog in Brussels. Our target audience are expats and tourists visiting Brussels, usually 30+ of age and ready to follow our tips.  We are referenced in the press (at home and abroad) and usually score in the top 5 Google.co.uk and Google.com searches for Brussels food and travel tips. We are regular contributors to the Manyguide and the Townske app, are approved Google Local Guides and Lonely Planet Pathfinders and have a very active Pinterest presence.  

Sometimes we receive PRs and get asked if we would like to review a restaurant, participate in a tasting event of food or drinks products, and/or post advertisement on this site.

We are open to all! However in making yours and our lives easier please note we don’t simply copy/ paste PRs on the blog and we don’t write reviews of anything we have not tried out ourselves. We are however interested to participate in any of the following and although we have full time (non foodie related) jobs, we can organize ourselves to : 

  • participate in food and drink related events (eg Timmermans Brewery Visit, Lindemans Premium Gin)
  • try out food and drink related products or concepts (eg Vandemoortele Oil, Godiva, Neuhaus)
  • try out restaurants and write a review (eg Garuda, La Villa Lorraine)
  • try out newly opened or refurbished hotels for our Brussels City Guide (eg Steigenberger Wiltcher’s Hotel, Crowne Plaza Le Palace)
  • join press visits and trips on social, travel or food related topics (eg for our Life in Belgium column).

We always reserve the right to point out to our readers that we are reviewing as per invitation. We always post a disclaimer when we have been invited by a restaurant to review it. We reserve the right to post both positive and negative reviews. And we also reserve the right to not post a review. Interest in our honest opinion? Get in touch.

    Hello,

    Question about your Blog

    I am writing in the hopes of opening up a communication channel with your blog (if you are interested).
    We are a blog and website that is frequently writing about topics that are beer and spirits related (usually from a label perspective).

    We are always looking for interesting content/posts to mention and link to on our blog and website. As such, if you post something you feel is very unique/interesting on your blog, please let me know via return email.
    We are happy to give it a mention on our blog and send a link to it your way.

    We are serious about quality content and I think that our content generation is creative and high quality (ie. we don’t blogspam).
    Here is a link to something that we did recently that has generated a lot of interested:

  • Love the site – food and wine are all that is important in life… get them right and everything else drops into place.

  • Dear Glorious,

    I love your site! However, I don’t see much in it about wine. I’ve been in the wine business in the U.S. for over thirty years, and have published columns on wine and food for over twenty.

    I’ve recently started my own blog — http://www.randycaparoso.blogspot.com — but seem to have no luck attracting readers other than my own relatives. Would you be interested in including my stories on wine and food on Glorious Food and Wine?

    Please let me know.

    Thanks!

  • A Brussels Nostalgic

    Hello there!
    Andreea, you got to help me out! I am looking for a decent place to have a once-in-a-year dinner with 35 old friends.

    Can you suggest a place in Brussels? We have a couple lined up, but I am afraid that we won’t fit!

    Thanks in advance,

    ABN

  • Hi Andreea and Mark – I’m leaving a reply as I can’t find your email on the site.

    My name is Jane and I’ve recently started the blog Best of Brussels (http://bestofbrusselsblog.com/) and have come across all of your great blogs in my foray into the online world.

    Along with Alison (http://cheeseweb.eu/) and Jessica (http://www.puertoriquenainbrussels.com/), I would like to invite you to join us for a Brussels Blogger meeting at Cafe Belga (Place Flagey).

    There are many get-togethers of this type in other cities, so we thought it would be a good idea to organize a gathering in Brussels for all of us who are providing tips and resources for expats and visitors. We would love to exchange ideas and advice about blogging and using other social media tools. It would also be a great opportunity to get to know other like-minded people in Brussels!

    I’ve set up a Doodle poll to try to find the best date for all of us –
    http://www.doodle.com/6xd7ysypvfc3z5cz. Thanks for filling this in by 28 October.

    You can contact me at athomeinbrussels@gmail.com. Looking forward to meeting you!

    Best regards,
    Jane, Jessica & Alison

    P.S. Please pass this on to other bloggers you would like to include!
