What you'll do
We are going to visit the Rijksmuseum and seeing the best 30-40 culinary paintings (depending on what is available) within 90 minutes. I tell you everything you want about these paintings and Dutch cuisine, as I am an official ambassador of Dutch cuisine. Afterwards we walk to Cafe Welling and enjoy there the Amsterdam ox sausage, artisanal Gouda cheese and mustard and pickles. We end with traditional eau de vie distillery made by Lubberhuizen, the owner of the brown cafe.
I am member of the Dutch Ark of Taste commission; we try to promote traditional and artisanal Dutch products and recipes. I am the only guide in the Netherlands who combines visiting the Rijksmuseum and seeing the best Dutch culinary paintings and afterwards enjoying several Ark of Taste products, i.e. the best Dutch cheese and sausage with Dutch pickles and mustard in a traditional Dutch brown pub.
