An Intro to Dutch Cuisine

THE perception of Dutch cuisine for the majority is shaped by Van Gogh’s ‘Aardappeleters’ (The Potato Eaters), a masterful depiction of homeland peasants sat around the dinner table. Times have of course progressed, but one will find the humble potato is still a national kitchen staple today.


Cheese is another well known Dutch speciality, in fact it’s argued by some scientists that the reason the Dutch are so notoriously tall is because of their love of cheese. Whether you buy the explanation or not, in Edam and Gouda you have two wonderful Dutch exports that bring immeasurable pleasure to millions of small and tall people across the world.

Not a short person in sight

But there’s plenty more gastronomic pleasures to enjoy beyond cheese and potatoes, whether you like a good beer or a pea themed cruise on the Amsterdam canals. So enjoy!
