The ‘Kroket’

Did you know that such a ‘typical Dutch’ thing like the ‘kroket’ is not originally from the Netherlands?

The ‘kroket’:

was invented in France in 1705 for King Louis 14th

used to be a luxury course between soup and the main course

became a true Dutch snack since 1950 (Herman Kwekkeboom and Aart van Dobben) and can be ‘pulled out of the wall’ in many places in the Netherlands.
