Cook back in time, cake-balls & takeout

Geli & Cathy 17/10/2020

A cook back in time as Charlotte Kleyn, local food historian, joined us on the Amsterdam Kitchen radio show (and podcast) to talk about how the Dutch used to eat, why vegetables weren’t valued so much, the culinary detective work she does by tracking through Dutch records, when the first ever takeaway pizza was delivered in the Netherlands, and much more. We also shared lots more local food stories, a lot of take out and delivery news for Amsterdam now that restaurants and cafes have closed during our partial lockdown, and great music tracks to keep our spirits up.
