Belgian Club of Northern California


Welcome to BCNC

The Belgian Club of Northern California (BCNC) is a non-profit organization for Belgians living in or around the San Francisco Bay Area. Friends are always welcome to participate.  Join us for one of our events.

BCNC is a place to enjoy our time together remembering the good food, the company and exchanging stories of our home country. Some members have been here for many years and others just arrived for college or career. All are welcome!

BCNC invites its members to an exclusive visit of Sonoma Gourmet, a company founded in 1990 by Belgian Entrepreneur Roger DeClercq and his business partner Bill Weber. Roger was a Chef at a Michelin starred restaurant in Belgium. He then decided to start a new business to allow him to come home each day early instead of working late hours...and that was the start of Sonoma Gourmet! 

Sonoma Gourmet produces gourmet food products and condiments now sold nationwide by many retailers including Whole Foods Market, Costco, Trader Joe and Williams-Sonoma. It is based in Sonoma, California with approx. 50,000 sq ft of a high-automation manufacturing production employing a staff of 54 to produce a stunning 75,000 jars daily. 

This BCNC event promises to be AMAZING with:

  • the visit of the plant by Roger DeClercq, Director of Operations
  • a lunch and 
  • a wine tasting of 3 Sonoma wines.

Registrations for this exclusive BCNC members' event need to be made by June 4, 2023.  See HERE for more details.
