Kroket Story

 

This is me, I like food. I like to eat it, play with it, make it and i love to eat with someone and hate it when somebody eats the last bite of my plate.

 

Food is something i connect with my family, my friends and the colleges at my work. At all these places and with all these people i have a special dish that belongs to a certain person or happening. This makes my list of favorite dishes!

 

 Besides all these exotic meals i keep having this special relation with the KROKET!

The reason is that when eating a kroket i need to think about my grandparents. They had a butcher shop in the centre of a little village. 
 
Besides being a well known butcher, the place was famous for the kroketten that were sold. The receipt has been in the familly for years and is highly secret. 

Esspecially on carnaval my grandparents sold loads of kroketten in a couple of days. 
On year my granpa talked with a friend about making the kroketten and the friend gave him a tip to change something on the kroketten to make them more nice than ever. My granpa followed his tip and made hondreds of kroketten with the slightly changed receipt. 
 When the carneval started my granparents started baking the kroketten and it turned out that they exploded one by one in the fat. It was horrible and all the kroketten could been thrown away! You can imagine that my granddad was not very happy about this!
Luckily we still have the best receipt and every year around christmas time we make kroketten and we eat them with the whole familly. I always need to think about the exploding kroketten back in the days 🙂

Haha, fantastic croket story! Thank you! I am going to send the link to a friend of mine that believes that the croket is the essence of the Netherlands. That, plus the frikandel. But he must like it, since just a few days ago he moved to Amsterdam.
