So, I picked up Jen from the airport yesterday and brought her back to Delft. During our 20 minute change at Den Haag H.S., she decided to investigate the Dutch snack counter, and discovered that most Dutch of snacks – the kroket. I think it’s safe to say that she’s hooked… as soon as we polished off the first kroket, she ran back to the machine to pick up the next one.
Once we got back to Delft, we quickly (ish) rustled up a roast chicken and then headed off to Locus Publicus to meet my friends Fiona and Ivo, and introduce Jen to Belgian and Dutch Beer. Guided by Fiona, our resident expert, she sampled the Zatte van de IJ, Afligem Blond and the Popperings Hommel, accompanied by the traditional kaasplank – a selection of (primarily dutch) cheeses. We rounded the evening off nicely with a visit to Alef’s snackbar, for, yes you guessed it – another kroket!
