Simple and comforting, the Dutch style of cooking grew from cold climates and strong agricultural industries. In this Kitchen Conversations recipe collection, soups and stews stand alongside summertime salads, such as this celeriac variety. Potatoes are a popular ingredient in the Dutch diet, whether boiled, mashed or roasted or fried. Try the tuber in these croquettes, caraway bread or a hearty lamb stew. Desserts in the Netherlands are particularly impressive. From Antillian pear tart and Limburger cherry flan, to apple fritters, turnovers and cake, fruity flavours are a common thread.
