On December 10 Slow Food is celebrating Terra Madre Day! On this occasion, Slow Food Netherlands organises an interactive online tasting with special Dutch Ark of Taste products.
During the online tasting – hosts Guus Thijssen and Eva Flantua – will shine a light on various questions such as: what is artisanal farmer’s cheese and how does traditional Limburg syrop contribute to biodiversity?. Together with culinary author – Nadia Zerouali – they will search for answers. During the online event, several Ark of Taste products will be tasted, including:
- Boeren Goudse Oplegkaas (aged artisanal Gouda): a washed-curd cheese made from raw milk only during the summer season.
- Boeren Leyden Traditioneel (traditional Boeren Leyden): one of the oldest cheeses in the Netherlands, characterized by a high acidity, low fat and a solid structure.
- Friesian smoked sausage: traditionally, this sausage used to be smoked with peat, the cheapest and sometimes the only energy source available in the northern part of The Neterlands. Today, very few butcher are left, and only few of them still use peat to cure their meat products.
- Limburg syrup: this fruit syrup has a very long history. The traditional version is made of ca. 60% pears and 40% apples and only a skilled artisan can select the right fruits in the correct ratio and then cook them properly.
Participants can choose between three different tasting packages. For further information and to get your ticket, click here. Event organized by Slow Food Netherlands.
