What To Expect
Treat yourself to the authentic flavors of Amsterdam as a local prepares a traditional Dutch delicacy just for you! This tour will be initiated with your meetup with the local who will cater to your lunching needs. Then, the host will take you shopping for the ingredients he will need to prepare your meal.
Take a bite of the "Pannekoeken", a traditional Dutch food which translates to pancake in English. Enjoy a pancake lunch with your generous host whom will also cook the food for you as you chat with him about any subject to your liking. Take part in the food preparation if you wish as you exchange stories with the host. Stories about himself, the house, his family, and Dutch cuisine traditions will be shared to you as your host cooks. Your host will take you to his home, a 14th century monastery converted into a 20th century subsidized housing with a relaxing garden space.
Feel like a local as you spend a few hours with your host and give his comfortable home a visit. This tour is considered very special and unlike any other since you will get to experience dining in a local's home instead of just eating out at a local restaurant. Once the food is ready, sit down with your fellow travelers, take pictures and share even more stories about your travels.
