Dutch Food - Oubliewafels
Summertime is Kermis (fair) time! This week we have kermis videos on our YouTube channel, and a recipe for oubliewafels on our website. Click on the picture to be taken there! Oubliewafels are large, thin, crispy, sweet waffles, rolled into a tube, and filled with sweet whipped cream. They fall into the category of tricky-pastries-to-eat, like the tompouce or the Bossche Bol, because one bite into the waffle may cause the cream to shoot out the other end, so you've been warned 😉

Dutch Food - Paasstol
We celebrate Easter over two days: Easter Sunday (1st Easter Day) and Monday (2nd Easter Day). On Sunday, it's time to get together with family and friends for breakfast. Egg dishes are popular, as well as rich breads. One of those breads is the Easter stollen, the Paasstol. The bread is the same as the Kerststol, the Christmas stollen, except at Christmas time, the bread is dusted with powdered sugar, and at Easter time it's brushed with apricot jam and covered in almond slivers.

Dutch Food - Gebakken mosselen
I love deep-fried battered mussels! They always remind me of my times at the seaside, often in the fall or wintertime. Imagine being out and about in that cold, windy, wet weather, and clutching your freezing fingers around a small container of hot, crispy, tasty mussels. Heerlijk! These are standard fare at fishmongers and fish stalls all over the country to enjoy on the go, so treat yourself next time you're in the country - or do like we do and make them yourself!

Dutch Food - Friese Uiensoep
Friesland, all the way up north, is famous for its Elfstedentocht, unique language, beautiful landscapes, as well as a strong and rich agricultural history (check out our videos from Friesland on our YouTube channel!), Friesland also has a rich culinary history. For this occasion, we've made a Frisian onion soup: a thick, slightly sweet and tangy soup, topped with grated Frisian nail and cumin cheese croutons. It's a satisfying, warming soup, perfect for the wintery weather.

Dutch Foods - Eierballen
The work on our YouTube channel continues, and this week we're posting various short films showcasing Groningen, one of our provinces up north. And when you say Groningen, you can't help but think of eierballen, the traditional Groninger snack: similar to the Scotch egg but instead of meat, the egg is wrapped with a flavorful curry ragout. Delicious, and a great meat alternative!

Dutch Food - Drentse Turfkoek
Drenthe embraces its turf history with gusto. A typical product that you will find at local bakeries is the Drenthse turfkoek, a turf cake, so called because of its appearance. Its shape, elongated and rounded at the edges, is said to mimic the shape of a peat log. This is a fairly new invention, which results in different bakers using a variety of approaches, all tasty and delicious. The main ingredients are koekkruiden (a mix of herbs and spices), brown sugar, milk, and dried fruits and nuts.

Dutch Food - Slemp
Happy New Year!! Today is January 1st, the first day of a new year. Today is a good day to go "uitwaaien", to let the wind blow the cobwebs from our brain, to air out the stuffiness from too much sitting inside and being cooped up with other people. And after a long, chilly, brisk walk (or swim), there's nothing more gezellig than to come back to the house and have a warm glass of slemp, a flavorful hot tea drink made from milk, cinnamon, cloves, saffron, and sugar.

Dutch Food - Tomatensoep
The Netherlands is currently the world's largest exporter of tomatoes worldwide, ahead of Mexico and Spain. We have quite a history with tomatoes: at first deemed only a decorative fruit, the tomato was considered poisonous until they figured out that the tin plates on which they served them caused the toxins. It quickly moved from show-apple to love-apple, celebrating the presumed aphrodisiacal powers this fruit of the nightshade family might have, and has since 1900 featured in our diets in va

Dutch Food - Pindarotsjes
For a great snack, gift or little treat, all it takes is a handful of roasted peanuts, and a bit of dark chocolate. And if you don't like peanuts or dark chocolate, not to worry. This can also be made with almonds, hazelnuts, or even a mix of nuts and dried fruits, and milk or white chocolate. What's not to like?

Dutch Food - Kruidnoten Arretje's Cake
The combination of kruidnoten and chocolate is a winning one - and one that has not gone unnoticed by food lovers. the sweetness and creamy mouthfeel of a good chocolate does combine really well with the flavorful spices and crunchiness of the kruidnoot, which is why today's recipe is such a no-brainer. For one, it is easy to make, and secondly, there is no need to use the oven so you will not be getting in anybody's way. Yay on both counts!

Dutch Food - Kruidnoten (pepernoten)
What do you call these tiny cookies: kruidnoten or pepernoten? With the appearance of Sinterklaas on Dutch shores, the yearly discussion on what these delicious, crispy crunchy small cookies should be called flares up. We don't mind either name, as long as those cookies keep coming. They are slightly addictive and because they're so small, it doesn't really count until you've had about ten. Or twenty. 😉 This recipe is quick and easy, and you'll whip up a batch in no time!
