Dutch Learning and Playing Together Group

Families in Delft, we would like to invite you to our new Dutch Learning And Playing Together group.

It can be hard to move to a new country, all the while taking care of a child and trying to learn how to live in a new culture. Therefore, this group aims to make it easier for mothers and their children learn a new language.

We believe that the support of a professional Dutch teacher, Dutch volunteers and fostering a community of moms and kids learning together will positively contribute to our learning. It is important to “Learn and Play Together!”

Age Group: 1-6 years.
Cost: 7.5 Euros for every week, each parent (Prices can be changed due to learning type activities as workshops etc.)
Place for maximum 15 children

Please join us and learn about the facilities of learning a new language with love.

Delftmama Mexican Cooking Evening

Hosted by Sandra Ivonne Barbosa

Let’s enjoy a Mexican dinner together. We’ll be preparing a quick but delicious starter: guacamole! Then we’ll be making home-made real Mexican tacos from scratch! In Mexico we prefer corn than wheat and we DON’T use taco shells, so we’ll prepare corn tortillas from scratch and we will also prepare the filling with minced meat: our typical “picadillo” filling. And for the ones who like spicy, we will also prepare a true Mexican salsa with “chile de árbol” (red chili peppers from Mexico).

IMPORTANT

Volunteer Christmas Party

At the beginning of the busiest of seasons we organize a lovely Christmas party for our tireless volunteers. We do this yearly, to show them how much we appreciate their efforts the whole year.

This is a closed party, only volunteers of Delft MaMa are to come. If you’d like to be a part of this awesome group, make sure you contact us and let us know what you’d like to do for our organisation. We have a wide variety of jobs, regular and one-off events where you can try yourself out, as an organizer or a hands-on helper. It’s a great way to make your network of friends larger, have something do to outside the house, and do a “dry run” on jobs/tasks that are unfamiliar and a bit scary (however interesting)… not to mention how good it looks on your CV once you want to go back to work!

Happy Holidays and hope to see you among us next time!

Delft Mama Bake-off

The Great Delft Mama Bake-off

Hosted by Nathan and Tarja

The Netherlands, the Low Countries. Home to dykes, bikes, clogs and croquettes. But most importantly for this story, iconic home for centuries to windmills. And that means home to the most wonderful flour near at hand. If you live in the Netherlands, there’s a good chance you live within moderate striking distance of a windmill that grinds its own flour. (If you live here in Delft, the Delft Windmill — http://www.delftsemolen.nl — uses traditional methods to make stone-ground, organic flour and you can even watch them in action if you visit on Thursdays.) And that makes the Netherlands a wonderful place to learn to bake bread. I started baking less than a year after arriving in the Netherlands and I’ve now been making all our family bread for more than 2 years, from loaves for weekly lunches to bread for special occasions. It’s been a wonderful adventure, providing lots of fun, relaxation and (almost) always with a very tasty reward at the end.

In this next edition of Delft Mama’s cooking evening, we will prepare and bake together two basic breads: a yeast loaf and a soda bread. By varying the shape and size of the loaf and the flour or mix of flours used, these simple breads can be styled to suit almost any occasion. And practising these will give you the confidence and skills you need to branch out into more adventurous breads like English hot cross buns, Italian ciabattas and French fougasse.

During the evening, we will each prepare and bake two small loaves which you can take home with you at the end of the evening. For dinner, while our loaves are rising and baking, we will eat bread I have made earlier with a traditional Finnish salmon and potato soup brought along by Tarja van Veldhoven.

Come along and join us… if you dare. Once you start, baking your own bread can be a hard habit to break.
