Dutch cuisine is not exactly world famous. The Dutch themselves do not have a tradition of fine cooking, and hot meals are limited to one a day, traditionally in the evening.

Breakfast generally consists of sliced bread with cheese, sliced cold meat and/or jam. Most people have sandwiches for lunch with the addition of perhaps soup, a salad or fruit. For the evening meal, potatoes and vegetables are accompanied by a serving of meat or fish. This traditional diet is also the most economical.

Please note that this is the kind of food that you will find in the restaurants on campus.

In recent years, however, Dutch tastes have become more international and refined. You will find a large variety of products (pasta dishes, rice, curry) in the regular supermarkets, and many restaurants offer a wide range of international dishes.
