What to eat and drink in Wassenaar
The Dutch adore potatoes. In fact, one of Vincent Van Gogh's most famous paintings is `The Aardappeleters' or potato eaters. Stamppot is the pinnacle of Dutch cuisine. A kilo of potatoes, boiled to oblivion, mixed with some really well done cabbage or raw endive and mashed into a pulp. Although Holland has a few other famous dishes like erwtensoep and snert (pea soup) the emphasis is on truly international cuisines, like Asian and modern European.
