Dutch?

If you wanna cook Dutch for a Polish girl, you might as well cook something Polish for her...On the other hand, if she's living in the Netherlands and you cook Dutch for her, she might feel at home :)

If you want to do Dutch, I would suggest fried noodles with veggies and meat, accompanied with chicken satays in a nice, creamy peanut sauce, some pickled vegetables and ketjap and sambal oelek (chili paste - spicey, but not too spicey) and a baked egg on top of it. If you want recipes for this, just ask :)

Whatever you do, don't ever try this unless you're Dutch.

Clowns are best with a bit of ketchup, a bit of mayonnaise and some raw onions. We call it "Clown Special" or Bozo the bonky snack.

Yeah, but clowns are not human.

stampot

Hm, Bami is very Dutch in the meantime. But if you want to make stamppot, then I would suggest Hete Bliksem (Hot Lightning): mashed potatoes with sweet and sour apples and some onion. It's delicious!

nice avatar again indeed, B

Gracias!

Indian food is a bit too spicy for my liking. The last two are okay, but the first 3 choices are the the tastiest. Especially the Polish food, in my opinion. Probably because it's a real treat for me, when I have the opportunity to eat Polish food.

Is this not Indonesian/Malay?

It's Indonesian indeed. It was introduced in NL quite a long time ago as Indonesia used to be a Dutch colony. It's a very popular dish in NL and nearly every Dutchman knows how to make it. You can get spice mixtures for it everywhere and it's in fact so integrated in the Dutch menu that you could say that the current version of Bami is a Dutch dish. It's very different from the original Chinese/Indonesian version. Btw: In NL the Chinese restaurants are actually a mixture of Chinese and Indonesian with the emphasis on Indonesian as this is more popular in NL. Also, you will find that Chinese dishes in Dutch Chinese restaurants taste very different from the ones in the rest of the world. That's indeed because they are more Indonesian than Chinese and the Chinese dishes are heavily adapted to the Dutch taste.

sambal oelek

this thing is pretty useful

Yeah, I used to live in Indonesia which is why I thought that. I guessed it would be due to the colonies thing, just like Indian Curries are pretty much engrained into the British menu. Infact the Bahasa language has a lot of similarities to Dutch by all accounts.

I love sambal oelek. The ones you get in the Oriental Emporia here in Dubs are spicey, but not too spicey and have a little sweet and soft in them, but it's not sweet. The one I buy in NL is not sweet and is a little more spicey, however Sambal Brandal is much and much more spicey, although I doubt if you could get it anywere in Europe outside of NL and BE. The hottest sambal that I know is made of the small yellow chilipeppers, in NL we call them Madame Jeanet's. That stuff is so freaking spicey - much spicier than Tabasco or it's variations. One teaspoon of that stuff into a full pan of food and you have yourself some seriously hot food.

Edit: you can use it pretty much on everything; the best however is on a cheese sandwhich for a little tangy bite or on peanutbutter, to get that saté-sauce idea. You can also use it to spice up gravy, pasta dishes, et cetera, et cetera.

True, they use quite some Dutch words in Indonesia. However, we cannot understand each other.

That much I guessed. I always was a fan of Holland, had some great days sitting by canals in the sun drinking beer and eating chips and mayo!

The sauce they call "Mayonaise" in Dutch snackbars isn't actually Mayonnaise. It's only allowed to be called Mayonaise if it has 80% fat in it. This sauce has actually 35%, I think. It's called Frietsaus (chips-sauce) and it's great :) It just kinda looks like Mayonaise (it's a bit more yellowish than Mayonaise - but we call it Mayonaise anyway) and it's great if you have chips with this Mayonaise, Ketchup and raw onions, "Patat Speciaal" (chips special) - chips with mayonaise is simply called "Patat Mèt" (chips with...) ;)

I would like to cook a polish girl and make a dinner for a czech girl.

There is an authority for that: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mayonnaise

The Belgian law states that Mayonnaise should have 80% oil in it. In the Dutch version of Wiki it says so, but check under the Europe section of this article, it doesn't state it, but I can assure you that it's true.

Well heaven forbid I should question the very strict Mayonnaise authority :)

I can assure you that it's true.

So what do you call the 79.99999999999999% fat stuff?

this was supposed to be a "what to cook a polish woman" thread!!

Tell us a bit about her and what your intentions are towards her, so as we can better understand the situation and be able to give you better advice while getting some gossip ;)

I suppose that will have to do.........for now ;-)

I would keep it simple, with fresh produce and not too spicy, like it has already been suggested.
