Baking stroopwaffle and beer tasting. (More info, search for: stroopwaffle.org ) 1) Stroopwafel baking class. We’ll introduce all the ingredients of this delicious treat. 2) (2 persons per station), we will take you step by step through the process of making the waffle dough. All ingredients are prepared and ready to use. The dough needs to rise for 35 minutes. 3) Beer tasting. In the Netherlands we have a tradition of local beer breweries. We selected 4 that make a “Double” beer. Very tasteful and well-known by the Dutch. We are curious what your favourite is? 4) Preparing the sugar syrup. In your perfect waffle, you need the perfect (in Dutch: stroop) syrup. We’ll cook it shortly with real Madagaskar Bourbon vanilla and cinnamon to the perfect temperature of 45 degrees celsius. 5) Bake it! With our dedicated waffle iron, you bake 7 stroopwaffles, finish them with your own made syrup and your Dutch stroopwaffle is ready to eat. We do not provide a gluten-free version. During our workshop you will learn, discover, but especially have lots of fun. Fun fact: Did you know The Dutch have a rich tradition of drinking beer. Around 1700 it was considered healthier (and safer) to drink beer instead than water? While the dough is rising, we’ll present you a small beer tasting.
My name is Eric. Entrepreneur, teacher scriptwriting and a mentor of young technological start-ups. My passion is to help people and inspiring them to achieve their dreams. For over ten years I have owned and managed two very popular restaurants in the heart of Amsterdam. After selling lots of lobster, great steaks and wine, I’ve sold these companies. Because of all these experiences I’ve gained during that adventure I want to inspire people and show them the Dutch kitchen. Even something simple as making a Stroopwafel have some hidden tricks. For example: fresh vanilla and using dark brown local beer. Don't worry, we will teach you! Instead of using milk, we use a Dutch ‘Dark-brow’ Dubbel beer, to give it even more flavour.
