Edible Things – Live and Cooking at Neighbourfood!

The Neighbor Food Market

The Neighbor Food Market

I have some exciting news, that I would like to share. You may remember that I was really inspired and excited by the Neighbourfood Market last month. I am delighted to let you all know that I have taken the plunge, and have arranged myself a stall for my homemade food. I have never done this kind of thing before, so I thought that this time I would try not to go overboard.

As I hope that you can tell from reading ediblethings, I love making home cooked food, from scratch. I want to do this for the people who come to the neighbourfood market, and share my love of food. Wherever possible, the food will be organic, but as I am just starting out, not all the food will be 100% organic this time.

I will be making Jacket Potatoes. There is not really a tradition of baking potatoes in the Netherlands in the same way as we do in the UK, at least in the shops and take aways, but so far market research has been promising. I want to do the ones we are used to, with a nice crispy outer skin. I have been experimenting with some jackets, and think I have the right one now.

The menu in full is:

Jacket Potato

or Baked Sweet Potato

with your choice of filling from:

Mexican Chile

Vegan Chile

Homemade Beans

Cheese & Chive

‘Stampotato’ with boerenkool- with or without rookwurst

There will also be a small selection of seasonal marmalade and citrus curds which I will be selling.

Because I am so obsessed with making jams and preserves, I am always on the lookout for jam jars. If you bring me jam jars, you can have a discount on your purchase from edible things, although I am still calculating costs, so details of how much will follow.

So, I really hope that you will join me at the Westergasterrein in Amsterdam this Sunday between 10 and 3. Of course, there will be loads of stalls, and other produce and food available, so why not check it out, even if potatoes are not your thing!

The idea is that we all have a mind for sustainability, so you are encouraged to bring your own plate and cutlery. Washing up facilities are provided. And they have made arrangements to donate the leftovers to the homeless. So, not only can you enjoy great food and a gezellig atmosphere, you will be reducing waste at the same time, and we all know how much I hate waste, don’t we?

    This sounds really nice. I’ll be in France this weekend but have noted future editions in my diary. Good luck!

  5. Damn I wish I had been in NL for this!! “Jacket potatoes with beans and cheese” is my absolute-favourite street food in the whole world. 🙂

    And I’m sure yours would have been so delicious that they would ruin my ability to enjoy those made by any others!

    • Thank you Anna! The beans were the least popular of all of the toppings, so there are still some in my freezer, if you want some when you get home! 🙂
      Hope that you are having fun
