I was asked to arrange a nice Dutch organic meal for an International Blogger x Microsoft Event.. Well.. First of all... I ain't Dutch.. second.. I ain't Dutch.. Third.. nah kidding... I sure can cook and create something Dutchy & Unique! ;D
I thought of my childhood and my mom.. cause she sure tried to bring the Dutch cuisine into our home.. but.. still not sure if you could call grilled Steak with gravy and white rice Dutch food?! she was like.. boiled potatoes what?! LMFAO..
Uhm..anyway..where was I..oh yeah. Back to the catering..
I eventually came up with this really unique and tasty dish! I sort of 'unwrapped' the typical Dutch dish 'Mashed Kale with Potatoes' into 'Mashed sweet potato with some beautifully grilled Kale (with lot's of unusual delicious seasoning), crushed roasted nuts and the typical Dutch Smoked Sausage, the classic Grandmothers 'Draadjes vlees' and grilled eggplant'.
A Exotic flavoured Pumpkin soup as a starter... and for desert I made a Crispy crusted 'Spelt' Apple Pie with Cranberries and a lemon whipped cream.. OOHHHhh... yes.. I'm drewling while typing..
I was focussing really hard on making this diner to a big success so therefore I don't have any more pictures of the rest of the dishes.. so sorry!
I will post the recipes very soon so you can try to make this too!
