At the Albert Cuypmarkt | DAM KITCHENS

Written by on 09/11/2018

My first visit to the Albert Cuymarkt was a feast for the eyes, but the smells also hit me with childhood memories and inspired new cravings.

Here’s my short report for Broadcast Amsterdam radio …

Notes:

I had wanted to try out a recipe from one of my favourite cook books, Plenty by Yottam Ottolenghi – Soba Noodles with Aubergine and Mango, but I didn’t think I’d be able to find some of the ingredients in my local supermarket. So I headed for Amsterdam’s famous Albert Cuypmarkt to see if I could find soba noodles, thai basil and more.

I found the soba noodles at an asian supermarket and all the fresh produce I needed at a nearby stall. I forgot to take any cash, but I managed to pay for all my shopping by card.

But how about you, do you have a favourite stall on the Albert Cuypmarket, or a shop you can recommend?
