What I Love/Miss (III)

It’s time for a recurring feature highlighting something I love about the Netherlands, and something I miss.

In case you missed them, here are the initial Love/Miss post and second Love/Miss post.

What I love: Throughout the year, little food trailers pop up on the street, selling the speciality of the season. In December it’s oliebollen (hot doughnut balls), for Konininedag (Queen’s Day) it might be festive broodjes, in June it’s fresh herring. This week the Fred has a new bakery speciality stand selling fresh breads and cookies. Not sure how long it will last; it could be there next month or gone next week.

What I miss: Maple syrup. The Dutch use powdered sugar on their poffertjes (mini pancakes), fresh fruit or a sweet syrup. But maple syrup? Not to be found. Now I love a Belgian waffle with homemade whipped cream and strawberries, but I grew up eating pancakes with maple syrup. I’m just saying. That’s what I miss, and what I ask guests to bring when they visit.
