Join Sharon and Lieke in our Taalhuis kitchen and learn how to prepare THE Dutch winter dish: boerenkoolstamppot. Although neither potatoes nor kale are originally from Dutch soil, they both grow here very well, which makes their way to the plate a very short one. And we can safely state that combining the two ingredients in a ‘stamppot’ (mashed potato dish) is a very original and traditional Dutch dish. (It was voted national dish by Quest magazine.) This warm and simple dish is very suitable for the cold winters.
During this 2,5 hour workshop, you will get your hands dirty while making your own Dutch stamppot (and if you want you’ll learn the necessary cooking vocabulary in Dutch while you’re on the job).
You can buy ready cut kale in most supermarkets, but today we’ll start from scratch and clean and cut this curly vegetable ourselves.
We will also prepare ‘the other half’ of the stamppot: smoked sausage.
* We will use biological meat and we’ll also make a vegetarian version.
For desert you’ll make your own apple pie (with whipped cream of course).
When the cake is in the oven and dinner is ready we’ll have a ‘borrel’ and set the table and taste a few Dutch starters. And then it’s time to taste this Dutch comfort food and chat about the Dutch culture, cuisine and language.
19:30: appetiser and setting the table
