    Dutch cuisine might not be in the same league as French or other well known cuisenes but there are some good things to be found in it I think...

    My favorites..kroketten/bitterballen (with mustard), patat met mayo (chips with mayonaise, its shared with the Belgians..their chips are really good) pea and brown bean soup, many Dutch cheeses but not the Edam cheese that is so popular abroad, chicory/lof dishes, Indonesian food (not strictly Dutch but after the Colonial days very much part of the eating culture here) Many stamppotten, like the kale(PanNan has a recipe posted for that), Hutspot, its a mash with carrots, onions and potatoes, and I love zuurkool/sauerkraut stamppot with smoked sauage..


    Last but certainly not least...haring with finely chopped onion!!!
    Mostly people think we eat this fish raw but its brined/gepekeld and has not a raw structure...it just looks raw.

    I probably forgot a few other favorites....

    I forgot the kale with potatoes stomp pot, too and the croepoek, that goes so well with the nasi goreng..and the wonderful vanilla icecream. The kroekettes and the stroopwaffles, and the rectangle cake slices made with whipped cream and puff pastry, glazed with some red sugar glaze, that fades later into the day...so very sweet and wonderful. The citron suiker from Baukjes and the little mushroom royal icing decorations, the ones, that look like toadstool mushrooms and the small itty yellow ducky ones and all the wonderful food from "De Hook van Holland" in Noordwijk Binnen, oldest restaurant/hotel in the Netherlands (1609)!! And the list goes on, I will remember more, the longer I think about it.....I didn't even realize, how much I miss it! icon_sad.gif icon_redface.gif icon_cool.gif . oh and oude gouda....REALLY old one!!!!

    You are right! The Edam is considered a cheap cheese here and not eaten all that much. I guess abroad people are attracted to the bright red parrafine dip around it or something..
    Haring is indeed technically not raw, but it also has not been cooked. It is cured by an enzyme. The process was invented in 1447 by Willem Beukelsz and is called "Haringkaken".
    It was done on the ship to preserve the fish. The main step in this process is to take the intestines out, then it is submersed in a brine.
    Actually nowadays there is only one fisher ship left that does the real thing.
    All other Dutch ships actually fish up Haring from the coasts of Norway and they are simply deep frozen for mostly industrial use, like pet food, fish food, and whatever they do with fish.
    The haring that we now eat here is actually produced in Scandinavia, I think Norway.
    Not too many Dutch know this, the industry likes us to believe that we are still presented with the real Dutch traditional "Nieuwe Maatjesharing" but it is now a product from the food industry.

    The one boat that still does the real thing sells it's catch to restaurants and probably to other people abroad who can - unlike the Dutch (sigh)- value a good quality product.
    We also have Eel, have you ever tried that? It is very good.
    Too bad that fishing for Eel made the species almost extinct.
    Like Salmon they are culivated nowadays.

    Ah cool, you live in the Netherlands!
    I don't know about an Eel disease? Hmm that sounds bad..
    Well actually I read an article about fish that you are not supposed to buy anymore because they are either fished up in expense of the local people (third world), environmentally problems or simply because the overfishing makes the species extinct.
    Not a lot are left anymore..

    Salmon
    Cultivated in large netted areas in Norwegian bays. They have different genetic built from the wild ones and the escaped animal mix with the wild ones, making the species weaker. Also their food comes from large scale (over)fishing somewhere else and it takes like 10 kilos of fish for one kilo of Salmon to grow. Their droppings disturb the local environment too.

    Kabeljauw, Zwaardvis
    Almost extinct. Are fished up before they have the chance to produce young.

    Eel
    Their larvea are caught in masses to cultivate them to adults.
    Almost no Eel makes it to adult anymore in the wild.

    Tuna
    Some are so rare that one fish when caught and sold to Japan is almost a year salary for the fisher. (blue fins?)
    The more common species are caught in a way that kills other animal like sharks and dolphins.

    Sole, Tong, Schol
    Caught before they produce offshoot.
    In the fishing, the nets ruin the sea bottom structure, making it a sort of desert.

    Shrimp
    Caught here or in Norway, then shipped to Marocco to have them peeled, then shipped back.

    And that is only what I can come up with without looking it up specifically.. big sigh

    I like Salt Herring, Smoked Eel, Stroopwafels, Gouda Kaas (or any dutch kaas) and dutch coffee. I love using the Koffie Melk they serve with coffee or tea as well. And one of my favorites is Vanilla Vla topped with Rode Bessen. Oh my husband made that for me when I first arrived here and it is still one of my favorite indulgence as a dessert.

    Thank you Carla. Actually I have used recipezaar for a while I had just never signed up as a member. I am happy to finally do so now.
    I live in Alphen aan den Rijn. My husband and I will probably be in Holland for 6 years, then we will move back to the U.S.
    I look forward to participating in this forum and chatting with other Foodies. It is always fun to share information and recipes.
