Where to find Dutch goodies in the U.S.
Dutch delicacies available in the United States
Have you ever enjoyed typical Dutch cuisine? I did, because I lived in the Netherlands for almost 10 years. I admit, before I moved to Holland, I had no idea what to expect as far as food was concerned (or much else, for that matter! It was my first trip abroad). Typical Dutch foods include fries (frites) with mayonnaise sauce, bread with hagelslag (chocolate sprinkles), and stamppot, a kind of one-pot meal made from mashed potatoes and other vegetables, usually served with meat and sauce. My favorites are satesaus (peanut sauce) and especially Dutch chocolate. But where can I find these things now that I've moved back to the United States?! Below are some of the sources I have found, and I am always looking for more! Have you seen Dutch foods in a local shop? Please let me know by adding a comment to the guestbook below!
