I've been tagged by Kristel from Vlijtig.
This means that you should write a meme with a Dutch twist. As I am a food technologist, I thought it would be nice to write about typical Dutch foods.
I'll cut this post in two and write a bit more later this week.
Let's start in the moring, where lots of Dutchies begin their day with a glass of milk and a wholemeal sandwich with Dutch cheese (sliced with a very thin slicing thing called "kaasschaaf").
Looks something like this:
Another favorite item to put on our sandwiches is called "Hagelslag", which are tiny pieces of chocolate to sprinkle on a buttered sandwich (in other countries they use it to decorate cakes with).
When it is time for a coffee break in the morning, a cookie is served to accompany the coffee (in bars and restaurants it is often individually wrapped).
The cookie can be a delicious "stroopwafel",
or in case of a birthday or something else to celebrate, a HEMA tompouce,
and when you live in 's-Hertogenbosch like I do, a "Bossche bol" (filled with whipped cream and covered with chocolate).
Enough for now, I'll write more later this week and then I'll tag some other people as well.
