The History of Dutch Food

You might look at Dutch dishes and think of winter. Lots of meat and sausages and a heavy dose of potatoes. And don’t forget the sauces! Yes, these are perfect wintertime dishes. And yet, the Dutch enjoy their national dishes all year long. In the past, it was all local ingredients, and people working in agriculture needed a good solid meal to work hard. Over the years and due to foreign influences, Dutch food evolved and changed. Modern food trends perhaps mean that the current young generation has a diet very different from that of their parents and grandparents. That said, a traditional Dutch menu is still a family pleaser. So so and try Dutch restaurants in Amsterdam. It’s not just for tourists! There is nothing we love more than finding more Dutch restaurants in Amsterdam and discovering a new dish.
