Netherlands 5

High Fives

The people of the Netherlands, more than any other in western Europe, have taken the food cultures of the world to their hearts, adapting them to their own tastes. This habits continues with the Kapsalon, a fast-food assembly of everything Dutch and something a little exotic.

Spices are never that far away, especially the sweet spices, no less than nutmeg. A flavouring for stoemp, a mashed vegetables dish that has its origins in the period when the Spanish ruled Holland, nutmeg transforms a dish that is essentially very simple.

Dutch traditional food is fun, and filling.
