This weekend Koen and I went to visit his parents in Roosendaal, the Netherlands.
Every time we visit, we always eat well! Saturday night we ate a delicious steak dinner accompanied by herb butter, curry coleslaw, and french fries. First I need to share a photo of the steak!
And now my plate:
It’s not dinner at my in-laws without a delicious wine! You can see more wines of my father-in-law here: www.grand-vin.nl
Sunday night we ate traditionally Dutch. We’re nearing the end of the white asparagus season and Koen and I still had not had any! So I made a special request for this weekend. In America white asparagus are hard to find, but over here in the Netherlands and Belgium in the Spring it’s a staple food. So Sunday night we ate boiled white asparagus with egg, smoked salmon, ham two ways – cooked and raw, Hollandaise sauce, and lamb chops!
And of course a delicious wine from www.grand-vin.nl
There are also nice snacks always when we visit! This time we had a selection of salumifici, or charcuterie in Italian. We had two to choose from, Bresaola and Coppa. As an amuse-bouche before the asparagus, Koen and I shared the Bresaola.
Sunday Koen and I were allowed to take the Coppa home with us, so tonight we used it to make an Italian salad. Over the salad I grated Parmesan and drizzled Balsamic vinegar. Yum!
Like I mentioned earlier, always delicious food at the Brörmann home!
