Red face Desire to learn

Hi, I'm Lilyas from Holland. A while ago I met someone who had a passion for cooking and teached me how to love food and look at it as a combination of art and love for the ones you cook. Unfortunatly that person's not in my life anymore, but the passion to learn to cook and share that with my loved ones sort of stayed. So, here I am, trying to share my cooking experiences with others and learn in the proces.

Welcome, you found a right place. I'm sure many of us have passion for cooking here.

And do share; tell us something that you make that is very special or specific for Holland.

Hi, lilyas. Welcome to DC. You will find lots of helpers here when it comes to food and cooking. You'll also discover this is quite a wonderful Internet "family." Glad you've found us. And I second CharlieD's comment about you sharing some special dishes from your country.

Thankyou, and by that I thank all, for welcoming me:)
I have to admit, unfortunatly Holland does not have a special food. Eversince we've introduced the potato here, from the time of the colonization, we have sort of hanged on to it, added vegetables and meat etc and that was that:)

But I promise after my exam period is over, I'm in the middle of it now:(, I will pay attention and write a thing or two about our food tradition here....

A thing I liked the most though was a recent event with the couscous: they had added nuts and dades to it. I liked that a lot....

I need to make one myself and am going to do so pretty soon....

You are from texas I saw. Is there a traditional food sort there? I wonder...

When I visited Amsterdam I had the most wonderful "waffles" I have ever tasted. They were sugary and maybe fried? Any ideas on the recipe?

Hai

Thank you for welcoming me. It's been a while and I had exams but now hopefully I can concentrate on fun things in life like cooking.

What I wondered, since I've never been to massachussets, what
are the food specialties there? Is there something as an American traditional food making? Tell me about these things when you have the time...

Thanks and till soon,

Lilyas

PS. I saw a remark of Sagan there:) Is that just a remark you like, or astronomy and popular sience in general?

Hi Lilyas! If you came to Boston, Massachusetts and wanted very "traditional" food, you would probably end up with lobster and clam chowder. New England (Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Vermont, and Maine) has a very proud history with the sea. I would say summertime grilling is a New England tradition too, but I think that's a lot of the country. Boston is known as "Beantown" because of Boston Baked Beans, but that doesn't really reflect what people actually eat anymore!
