Food – Waal Kootwijkerbroek, the Netherlands

On the way to the Kröller-Müller Museum while my hubby was driving, I found two bakeries where I would have loved to stop by. After visiting the museum, my hubby and I ‘accidently’ passed by one of them. It was a random opportunity for trying new pastry.

Inside, a woman greeted us and started preparing my tea. The bakery and the person reminded me of my favorite Hayao Miyazaki’s movie, “Kiki’s Delivery Service.” And loafs of bread were lined on the walls. There were many colorful chocolates for Easter celebrations—chocolates shaped like little birds and flowers were deliciously decorated in a case. Since my hubby was still recovering from Brussels’ water, I ordered a croissant, caramel, a walnut cookie, and an almond cookie. He just had an apple turnover.

The best apple turnover I ever had!

It was shaped like a triangle, and inside the apple was not too sweet, and had a little sour flavor. I tried apple flavored meals in the Netherlands—even the hotel had complementary apples at the front desk—but this apple pie was amazing. I’m glad my hubby ordered it (for himself).

While I enjoy eating there, a local woman bought a huge Easter basket full of chocolates and cookies. I wished that I could send a basket like that to my mother.
