Ever wondered what on earth to make for dinner? Lost for ideas, lacking in inspiration?

The answer is simple – it’s a 'Dish a day'. Belgian cooking is highly regarded the world over, and celebrated in this fresh, daily cooking show in which Jeroen Meus, a personable young chef, cooks up delicious, nutricious meals in minutes. Mindful of both the clock and budget, each day sees him preparing super simple, tasty dishes that anyone at home can replicate, bringing a new twist to old classics, or recreating the best of modern cuisine. Whether it be asparagus with jalapeno salad, yoghurt cake, bread budding, burrito, risottos, roast beef, ratatouille or even rhubarb soup, 'A dish a day 'offers hundreds of delicious, speedy solutions to mealtime dilemmas. 
Besides the regular episodes there are also 2 special summer editions. In 2017 Jeroen travelled around with his mobile kitchen in to cook at holiday destinations in Belgium. In 2018 he travelled to Spain where he prepared the typical local dishes. 

With top ratings six days a week, and numerous awards, including Best Lifestyle Programme award 2011, 2012 and Best Programme 2012, A Dish a day is a guaranteed recipe for both culinary – and ratings success.
