While we are still excited about our progress in the World Cup another big sport event has started. The Tour the France.
Yes, you may laugh, oh dear friends and family, as you all know how much I'm interested in sports (NOT). Still - this one I will follow with interest.
No, not the cycling one, THIS one!
Barbara, whom I've met through the forums of chocolate and zucchini, is the writer of the weblog 'winos and foodies' and has launched a great initiative:
"For the next 3 weeks a group of food bloggers will bring you the food traditions and recipes from the stages of the 2010 Tour de France. Recipes to represent each region the 2010 Tour de France will pass through."
One of the regions she herself will write about is the start, which is in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. To get a little more insight in dutch food, food culture and food history she asked for my help (Barbara is Australian) and it was great fun thinking a bit closer about the things that are so natural to me - to each of us: our typical food-habits.
I think Barbara can be very proud of the result (as am I!) and I'm looking forward to reading the specialities of the different regions of this Tour the France!
