I want to make my Dutch father in law a Dutch meal for his 70th birthday. Does anyone have any ideas? :)

An easy one is uitsmijters (pronounced, more or less, "out smite- ers". It means chucker-outs or bouncers - to get people to leave! ).

Cold meat, or cold ham, or slices of cheese on buttered slices of bread. Two or three. Top with fried or poached eggs. Surround with a little salad (lettuce, tomato, potato salad or Russian salad) and most importantly, pickled gherkins.

There are many Dutch recipe sites on the web.

1buzemum, my Mummade that a lot too. My kids absolutely detested it and still ask for it (tongue in cheek) every Xmas. LOL
She also used to make Zult(sp? ) which was brawn, and black pudding when Dad killed pigs on the farm.

My dad was a dutch pastry cook yummy we got spoilt rotten and mum was a fantastic dutch cook. All these dutch recipes make me yearn for more dutch food. Even my granchildren still love sutch cooking and baking.

This is not a meal, but these Dutch donuts are always popular in the markets.

1 bay leaf and 1 packet of split peas soaked in 1. 5L hot water until soft(about 2 hours)
! bacon or ham hock, 2 onions, 1 cup chopped celery stalks, 1/2C chopped celery leaves. 2 large leeks 1 rookworst.

Add bacon hock and veges to the peas and boil gently a couple of hours. Remove the bay leaf. Add the leeks slicedinto rings and cook another hour.

Remove the hock, chop up the meat and return to the pot. Add a whole rookworst and cook very slowly without boiling another 20 minutes.

Tastes even better teh next day. Dad can make this so it can be cut with a knife.

Green beans.

When ready to serve douse them in butter and sprinkle generously with nutmeg.

Roll out flakey pastry thickly, cut into rectangles or triagles and bake. When cool, split, fill with whipped cream or custard and ice the tops.

This is what Mum called tompezen, but I've had them elsewhere and they've been what we call eclairs.
