Fusina is a friendly and open Dutch host who loves to learn about different cultures. Fusina used to be the organizer of the Dutch cookbook competition and has authored many cookbooks about Dutch cuisine. She is a delightful storyteller, who enjoys meeting new people. Join Fusina in her beautiful apartment (remember to check out the classic architectural elements like traditional Dutch beams on the ceiling) in the heart of Amsterdam over a delightful Dutch dinner.
You will start your experience by joining Fusina in her kitchen and watch as she prepares stamppot, a traditional Dutch dish of potatoes mashed with smoked sausage and one or more vegetables that may include sauerkraut, endive, kale, spinach, turnip greens, or carrot and onion. Over a glass of Dutch wine or beer, learn to cook and flip pannekoeken or pancakes, a very typical Dutch dish for dessert. You can create sweet pancakes with a variety of ingredients and toppings like fresh apples or strawberries from the market. Your stamppot demonstration and hands-on pancake cooking class during which you will make and flip sweet Dutch pancakes from scratch will last about an hour and a half. Enjoy learning about the techniques involved in creating this dish as well as other traditions of Dutch cuisine before you sit down at the table to share the meal you helped prepare with Fusina.
Over your meal at the kitchen table, get to know your host Fusina as she tells you stories about herself, her family and the Netherlands. Enjoy a delightful dinner with this wonderful local before returning home.
