‘SOME say that the best snert is yesterday’s (…) the soup gets so thick when it cools that it can almost be cut next day.’ That really sums up the traditional Dutch dish, one so homely it should come free with a pair of slippers and a water bottle. The thick pea soup can be found sold at small food and drink stalls known as ‘Koek Zopie’, who cater to ice skaters along the frozen canals, ponds and lakes in the winter time.


Snert for the light-hearted

For those looking to take their relationship with snert to the next level, one can always travel on the ‘Snert Cruise‘; a lovely trip up and down the Amsterdam canals where you’re pretty much guaranteed to get plenty of alone time with your favourite soup as you’re more than likely to be the only guest on the boat.
