Reader's Comment

We are sorry to hear that you have stopped the printed version of your magazine. My mother-in-law was telling us only recently how much she enjoys receiving it and reading it. She is about to turn 92 and does not use a computer. We will do as you suggest, print it ourselves and send it to her.

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.
