Recipes by course
Whether you're looking for a main course, a dessert or simply a quick and easy snack to keep your
guests entertained, this is the place to find it.
Dutch main courses are traditionally filled with carbs and fat to provide enough energy to farmhands
and labourers, although some are surprisingly veggie-filled.
Dessert traditionally usually consists of some kind of porridge.
If eaten at all, appetisers often consist of soup, although some main courses will also work perfectly.
Snacks and pastry
The Dutch have a multitude of traditional pastries, cookies and cakes, both sweet and savoury.
Many of those are connected to certain holidays, and are something you can look forward to all year.
Lunch generally consists of one or two sandwiches, usually with cheese, meat, jam, peanut butter or
chocolate sprinkles. Occasionally traditional pastries may be served.
Like lunch, breakfast usually consists of bread, although yoghurt and rolled oats are also popular.
