On today’s episode of THE FOOD SEEN, let’s go Dutch, not Danish, for Christmas. Irish-born, now Netherlands native Yvette Van Boven, is the acclaimed cookbook author of Home Made Christmas and host of Holland’s popular cooking show Koken Met van Boven. She celebrates Sinterklaas on December 5th, eats pea soup with her hot chocolate, and leaves a shoe in front of the fireplace. While it’s less Heineken, herring, and bitterballen, and more trifles, eton mess and syllabub, the spirit of Van Boven’s Christmas is, “don’t freak out, it’s supposed to be really fun”. And eggnog is for Easter anyways.
