    Truly Gezellig in The Hague I’ve seen some of the Nuclear Security Summit 2014 here in The Hague and took a bit of video and some photo’s at the final press conference where Obama thanked the Dutch for a well organized summit and showed he knows a Dutch word “Gezellig” that many English speaking people claim is not so easy to translate….My idea is that the following English words give some meaning to gezellig: Cozy, snug and intimate cover it more or less.

    5 Mar 2014 | 6:18 am
    For these schnitzel I took a piece of pork. Many people find veal better for the real schnitzel. Me too, but for this one I liked to experiment with pork. First you dip both sides in flour. Then you dip both sides in egg. Some German gourmet friend of mine suggested to mix some cream through the egg. Will do that next time. Then dip the meat in the breadcrumbs. With family ties in Austria we tend to take the position the breadcrumbs have to come from Austria…. Finally the schnitzel sizzles in the pan. Use some kitchen paper to take away a bit of the butter before you serve them.
