I decided to go old school for dinner tonight and make white asparagus, Dutch style! According to all the Dutch people, I know, this involves serving the asparagus with melted butter, a hard boiled egg cut up in pieces, and a slice of ham.
I read an article in the Thalys magazine about the Low countries food specialities so I also decided to get Belgian endive to have with it instead of the more traditional boiled new potatoes.
I even have a good beer from the Brouwerij 't Ij to go along with it. When the weather is as sunny and the sky is as blue as it has been for the past days, I want to celebrate all things Dutch!
