About Dutch recipes

Dutch agriculture roughly consists of five sectors: fishery, animal husbandry, and tillage-based, fruit-based, and greenhouse-based agriculture. The last has had little or no influence on traditional Dutch eating habits.

Tillage-based crops include potatoes, kale, beetroot, green beans, carrots, celeriac, onions, all kind of cabbages, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, endive, spinach, Belgian endive, asparagus and lettuce. Recently some initiatives have been started to encourage interest in such "forgotten" vegetables as common purslane, medlars, parsnips, and black salsify.

Greenhouses are used to produce tomatoes, lettuce, cucumbers, and sweet peppers.

Fruits include apples, pears, cherries, berries and plums.

The Dutch keep cows for milk, cheese and meat, chickens for their eggs and for meat, pigs for their meat and sheep for their wool and meat. Traditionally horse meat was a common dish (steak and sausage), but horse meat is seldom eaten nowadays.

The fishery sector lands cod, herring, plaice, sole, mackerel, eels, tuna, salmon, trout, oysters, mussels, shrimp, and sardines. The Dutch are famous for their smoked eel and soused herring, that is eaten raw.
