Kitchen Corner December 2019

KITCHEN CORNER DECEMBER 2019                                                                           If there was ever a time of year to change your name from Ina to Mia, it’s before the fifth of December in the Netherlands, when Sinterklaas brings presents to children. You see, the Dutch love to give each other chocolate letters for Sinterklaas.  These letters are supposed to correspond to the first letter of your first (real!) name. They are made from dark, milk or white chocolate (my preference) and they are all lekker! Now, I think you’ll agree with me that those skinny letter ‘I’s don’t seem to match up to their weightier friend, the larger looking ‘M’s!  So, for the next week, I’m glad my name is Mia.                                                                                                                                                                                                    This cool tradition means that from the middle of November, till Sinterklaas’ visit on the 5th December, Dutch kids put out their tiny little clogs (or crocs, depending on preference) for Sint to pop a choccy letter in there. They are also given as gifts to friends, colleagues and family members. Or me. Just give them all to me.  See you @ your club.             Mia

Don’t forget the last smoking for this year will be on Wednesday December 4. The fish you ordered can be picked up from the kitchen on                                  Friday the 6th between 11am and 8pm.
