I will write these in Dutch and English as for some traditional Dutch food, there is no translation! The variety is wide, we have many different dishes and lots of snacks. The most famous are I think the cabbage stew (potato and curly cale), croquette, salted raw herring, smoked fish, poffertje with butter and sugar (not puff but small pancakes) , stroopwafels (dubble cookie with sirop) with tea, Zeeuwse bolus (a delicious "poo or turd" from Zeeland)", pea soup, ....and much more. Winter time is the best time for stews, smoked sausages, puddings, and the traditonal split-pea-soup. Just tell me what you do NOT like to see on your plate and I will cook you a Dutch dinner. Not always cooked in the traditonal way but sometimes with a modern twist. Every other season brings another taste of the menu, so dessert and starter will be different in summer and winter.
Please bring your own wines an beers, those are not included with this dinner!

Kroketjes are the best, this one with a creamy filling with Dutch shrimps OR with mushrooms if you do not like to eat shrimps.
