Today I just wanna share this amazing video with you. Some of you might even know it already. Now you might say:” What has that to do with a food blog???!” I think this topic is present in all parts of our life. So it also has to do something with a food blog.
Just an example: With food you have boxes like Vegans, Vegetarians and people who eat meat – just to name a few… Now you’re sitting in a plane to anywhere and Vegetarians, Vegans, etc. do get their meals first. You might get upset or not, but you’ve already put them into another box than you are in.
We just live in a time where we too quickly put people into boxes, but maybe we have more in common than what we think…
I just discovert the most delicious thing you can do with a toast – beside french toast!
It’s a chocolate sandwich. Not with Nutella or anything … it’s with actual chocolate! And the chocolate was pink and with sprinkels! I felt like a little girl, who just has seen an pink unicorn! It was so delicious!!! 🙂
So now I’m gonna tell you how to have the same amazing taste experience as me !
Today I’ve chosen a recipe which will make your sweet tooth happy.
It’s a dutch candy called stroopwafle. Translated it means as much as syrup waffle.
The waffle is made from two thin layers of baked dough with a caramel-like syrup filling in the middle. It is one of the favotite sweets of dutch people and their tourists. I’ve tried it for the first time in the city of Gouda, where it was originally made first.
My friend from the Netherlands has send me an authentic recipe for homemade stroopwafels, cause she knows how much I love sweet things!!!
So what do you think about this picture down below ? Let’s guess what these gentleman are eating…
These people are dutch men who eat one of their favorite small, slippery, slimy, fatty, smelly sea-creature- the hallowed Herring! To say that the Dutch like herring is a vast understatement. It’s rather a a tremendous love affair between these two.
Right now is the colder season of the year. It’s windy, wet and muddy outside. And you just wanna sit in front of the warm oven, drink a hot cup of tea and read a good book.
And I just got the right comfort food for this weather! Stamppot is a traditional dutch dish made from a combination of mashed potatoes and several other vegetables or fruits.
Traditionally you can use sauerkraut, endive, kale, spinach, turnip greens, carrots and onions. Some regional varieties of stamppot are made with fruit and potatoes, such as blauwe bliksem (blue lightning), made with pears, and hete bliksem (hot lightning), made with apples. You can use pineapple with sauerkraut or endive too.
Stamppot is usually served with sausage , julienned bacon, or stewed meat. But you can also find recipes which include cheese, gherkins, nuts or pickled onions.
