Vorstelijk tafelen in Nederland

Royal dining in the Netherlands

Our Dutch culinary history 

(by Marianne Visser van Klaarwater)

Which dishes were placed on the Royal dining table of King Willem I?
Two hundred guests received the answer during the presentation of the book ‘Vorstelijk tafelen in Nederland’ (Royal dining in the Netherlands) at Het Loo on 30 April. Preceded by a gripping speech by former Minister-President Dries van Agt titled ‘dartelen met onze vaderlandse kookkunst’ (frolicking with our Dutch culinary history). 

VOC ship Zuytdorp

What happened to survivors of VOC ship Zuytdorp?

The Zuytdorp was one of four VOC ships that wrecked on the coast of New Holland in 1712.
Nothing was known about the circumstances for nobody reached Batavia to tell the tale.
She had 286 people on board and her disappearance was a great loss for the VOC for she carried a large treasure of silver coins and other valuables, used for trading.
Historians showed little interest even when it became known through an Aboriginal woman, Ada Drage, in 1927.

New Zealand exists of two main islands, very imaginatively called the North- and the South Island. Divided by the Cook Strait, a rough and windy waterway of thirty to one hundred kilometres wide. People wanting to go from one island to the other could use a small plane. But the majority of the people rely on the ferry.

An aluminium smelter has been in New Zealand since 1971. Aluminium is extracted from bauxite, particularly bauxite from Australia. The main owner of the factory is Rio Tinto, one of the largest multinationals in the world. In 2010, Rio Tinto made a profit of fourteen billion dollars. That includes the profit of ‘our’ aluminium smelter.
