DeGeest spotted in homeland
We have received reports from a reliable source that Mr. T. DeGeest (Belgium's Special Wafel Envoy to New York), has been spotted near the Belgian city of Liege. He would have been gathering intelligence on the best Belgian wafel makers in the country. Mr. DeGeest confirmed the reports and said "If we're serious about bringing the real Belgian wafel back to New York, we better find out first who in our country makes the best wafel. We have been talking to the top wafel-chefs, and it's really a toss-up who will get the contract. Also, we have found that the best wafels definitely come from the smaller, artisanal shops who still use the old-style Belgian recipes, techniques and natural ingredients. Our choice will definitely go in that direction!
