When I was back home in The Netherlands I got interested in the food philosophy of Dutch Chef Albert Kooy. He calls it The New Dutch Cuisine. A Cuisine that is sustainable and animal and environmentally friendly. We have a centurie of old culture about growing food, being famous for our dairy and of course the SpiceTrade to the South East. But if you look at the traditional dutch dinners, it is quite bland. The most important part of the meal is the meat and it comes with boiled potatoes and boiled vegetables. Not a lot spices, sauces or other flavourings.

Nowadays the Dutch are more creative and preparing a lot of international dishes at home. Pasta’s, curries and stir fries are quite common. But cooking with local and fresh produce with our Dutch heritage in mind… No, it’s not that popular. Which is a shame, because most people don’t even know what a lovely food we grow in the Netherlands. It’s more than just potatoes.

To cook more healthy Albert Kooy uses the rule of 20% meat and 80% vegetables, which is quite the opposite of what we are used to. Especially most men in the Netherlands think a meal without meat is no meal.

As a chef/teacher at the Hotel Business University he is inspiring a lot of his students with this philosophy and when we went for dinner there the food was absolutely fabulous! All products that were in season, from nearby farmers and cooked to perfection.

A lot of his recipes have been published in his book “The New Dutch Cuisine” and of course it has a baking chapter as well. So, let’s bake with some apples from my parents garden and use a typical dutch spice mix to make a classic but new Dutch Apple Pie

NB:
This article was first written in Dutch a few years ago. Since 2014 a lot has changed food wise in the Netherlands. People are starting to grow their own vegetables, are more interested in local produce and using more healthier options, which makes me very happy!
