First I had to discover the name of a culinary treat that the friars of the Carmelite convent came up with 900 years ago. Facebookers came to the rescue!
After discovering what I had to make the community sent me off to buy a Mastel at the bakery. Here I got a lot of help on Twitter. They also told me to buy some #Cuberdons, 'Gentse neuzen' as they say, since you can buy them just next to the bakery at the 'Groentemarkt'... How could I resist :-)

From there I cycled to Bar Jan Cremer where they introduced me into the ancient art of preparing an ironed Mastel. A typical Ghent dish. :-)
Let me walk you through it: You slice open the mastel, add butter (a lot of it!!), then brown sugar (also a lot of it :-)) and then you just iron the 2 pieces back together.
Sweet and very tasty!
Success! Nom nom nom :-) @GreetVdd @chateaubrys @SweetCharlie @visitgent • #BIGcc #MissionGhent pic.twitter.com/G23hQPxx38— The Social Traveler (@Social_Traveler) July 3, 2015
