Additional Details

Description: Holland is a small community rich in traditions inherited from its earliest settlers, the Dutch. This, the second edition of Eet Smakelijk cookbook, represents a blend of early Dutch and modern American cuisine. Scattered among the recipes are many of the traditional Dutch favorites that have been handed down from generation to generation. 

You will find tempting treats like banket staven (almond roll), jan hagel (sugar cookies), marsepein (almond candy), and of course, the ever popular saucijzenbroodjes (pigs in the blanket). A special favorite is borerenjongens, a Dutch drink prepared at least three months in advance of the holiday season. Other recipes reflect the culinary expertise of cooks who are from diverse regions and ethnic backgrounds and have settled in Holland. 

Eet Smakelijk (the Dutch phrase meaning to eat well and with taste) is a uniquely successful cookbook which has traveled to the four corners of the world, and has earned the distinction of being the official cookbook of Holland, Michigan. In preparation for this second edition, the community participated in a recipe hunt and bake off. The first and second place winners' recipes are featured along with other exceptional entries. The cookbook contains over 1,000 treasured recipes ranging from the very simple to the true "haute cuisine."
