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).

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.

Dutch cooking evening

Melle Hofman will host a Dutch cooking workshop in April 2017. Menu for the evening includes:

  • Groninger Mustard Soup
  • Witlof with Ham and Cheese

As Melle explains…

The Dutch are not famous for their cuisine – and in the Netherlands food is commonly seen as fuel for the body. Nevertheless, the Dutch do like to go out for dinner “voor de gezelligheid” and they then do indulge in some tasty Dutch classics. Famous from my region, “Groninger mosterdsoep” (Groninger Mustard Soup). It originates from the North of the Netherlands, but is now eaten all over the Netherlands. Made with just a couple of spoons of mustard from the Marne this soup is warm and flavorful icon often enjoyed with either bacon, smoked salmon or Dutch shrimps.

For this recipe Marne mustard is used from the province of Groningen. The mustard factory originates in Kloosterburen. This region is close to Zoutkamp at the Lauwers lake (previously Lauwers sea, it dammed from the sea in 1969) – a fishermen’s village famous for its fresh Dutch shrimps. Combining this heritage, today’s workshop will feature mustard soup with spring onions and fresh shrimps.

As a main course we will go all the way to the other end of the country, to a part that used to be a part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands but is now the capital of Belgium, Brussels. During the independence war of 1830, a Belgian farmer in Schaarbeek hid chicory roots in his basement under a layer of sand. Due through the mild winter these grew out to form a leafy vegetable found to be very tasty. Up till today, this vegetable is popular in the Netherlands and Flanders and is often eaten with ham and cheese. So for the main course, this workshop will feature “witlof met ham en kaas”, chicory with ham and cheese.
