When I was young a visit to Willy & Bernadette’s was always an adventure. They lived in a tiny house with a huge garden, straight out of a fairy tale. It was filled with all kinds of nic nacs, each of them with a story of their own. There was always something new to discover!
And a fairy tale house has fairy tale treats. Bernadette would never let you leave with an empty stomach. The coffee would be brewing and cookies would be served even before you could say ‘no thank you’. As you get ready to leave after having enjoyed story after story, you’d receive a large bag of the garden’s harvest. Our visits to Willy and Bernadette’s are among my fondest childhood memories.
Unfortunately, Bernadette has gone from us much too soon. But she left an amazing legacy: the Feistsuppe! It translates from the West-Flemish dialect, as ‘feast soup’! It’s an amazing tomato soup with Maredsous cream cheese. It might sound odd to mix cream cheese in with tomato soup, but believe me, it’s a feast!
You only need a can of tomatoes and it’s ready in no time to serve as an original appetizer and it makes for a big hit with the kids! And of course, you can treat yourself with it as well. It’s what Bernadette would have wanted above all else. 😉

Jomme’s blender broke while mixing, so it wasn’t blended perfectly, but nevertheless: yumyum! He added some extra Maredsous, but it was the low-fat kind, so it was permitted! 😉
Stijn wrote that it was ready in a second and that it was nice and spicy. Apparently he thinks canned tomatoes are spicy?! :-p
Tip: Pieter used some extra scoops of Maredsous as garnishing.
