That’s why chefs in the region – but also far beyond – like to use this delicacy in their creations. Hop shoots have an exquisite nutty flavour. And you’ll taste it. Just like the craftsmanship. Because hop shoots are indeed processed by hand. Will you come and try them?

Or would you like to get to know this delicacy better first? That's possible too. Cycle through Poperinge’s hop story, discover local hop beers or jenevers, or learn all about the history and processing of this delicacy during a visit to a hop farm or the hop museum. Alone or in a group.

Will you come and taste edible gold? Plan your trip now. Hop shoots may grow quickly, but they’re only available from early March to mid-April.
