If you have visited Amsterdam in the past 10 years chances are that you will have a selfie in front or on top of the IAmsterdam sign at the Rijksmuseum. Cherish it, because the sign has been removed. Local political party Groenlinks has decided it doesn’t reflect the values it wants the city to stand for. Read on.Read More
Amsterdam, the city of sex, drugs and Heineken. The Dutch capital has always been a booming tourist destination, not in the least because of its libertarian reputation. But since when does Amsterdam have a beach? Or a castle?Read More
We can’t think of a better way to celebrate the arrival of spring than to eat asparagus. After months of cold weather and fat foods nature knows exactly what we need and provides us with cleansing foods like this one. We have been stocking up on these tasty buggers that are at their best between March and May.Read More
This simple side is all about clean flavors, and goes with almost anything. The sweet soft beetroot, salty feta, crunchy hearty seeds, covered in a fresh lemon dressing is a go to for any meal. (O.K. maybe not breakfast…. or wait a minute…. maybe even breakfast….)Read More
In this third and final episode of the hunting with Eduard series of On the Road & in the Belly, Eduard van Adrichem opens us up to the wonderful world of flame-grill.Read More
This salad is best when freshly picked from a field after a day of hunting. You might be in luck and have parked your van next to these precious ingredients, but if you’re in an urban area don’t worry you can find most of the ingredients at the supermarket.Read More
Welcome to the wonderful world of flame grill! This was a whole new experience for both of us. Cooking meat directly in the flames is quite the show. You would think that the duck breast would get burned but it doesn’t.Read More
At five years old, I sat on the kitchen counter of our house in the Netherlands, with my legs dangling and a pear in my hands. I announced "I don't feel at home anymore" as I watched how my mother carefully placed our belongings in boxes around me.Read More
In our second episode hunter Eduard takes us on a foraging trip and shows us how to fillet a duck. All in his characteristic manner of course.Read More

Honestly I had no idea how I would feel on the road before we left the Netherlands, of course I had hopes and dreams, but I tried to leave my expectations behind. We have been travelling now for over a month and I am starting to get a hang of being a full-time nomad.
You know that feeling when your are in between jumping for joy and bursting into tears? That is exactly where I stand right now. With only two weeks left on our count down to take off I am shitting my pants.Read More
In Bosnia near Sokolac I passed a dead dog on the side of the street, run over by a car. She turned out to be a mother of one, a little puppy that popped up out of the grass. One look at that little thing and I knew I had no chance of leaving without her.Read More
This is probably one of the easiest ways to prepare duck. When we were still living in an apartment we would prepare this dish in a frying pan and then finish it off in the oven, but ever since we discovered what the smokey awesomeness of the bbq does, it’s hard to go back….Read More
Chopped salads are the shit, period (and this is coming from a die hard carnivore!), but even more so when you are living/cooking in a van. This carnivore was lucky enough to hook up with an ex vegetarian with a weak spot for Mexican food. We have the perfect labor division in Van James.Read More
One of the perks of being parked where we are is fresh smoked mackerel. The owner of this land (farmer Jos) catches and smokes his mackerel himself. He walked up to our van and handed us some of these tasty little buggers rolled up in some old newspapers. A very happy weekend it is!!Read More
In the summer we like to keep things simple and fresh, like this coucous salad.
Add as many fresh herbs as possible as long as they are fresh. We love parsley, cilantro and mint but you can add what ever herbs float your coucous-boat.
We discovered purslane this weekend and put it in a beetroot salad with some feta cheese. That was yum, but yesterday was an even bigger treat: spaghetti with purslane, garlic, white wine, horseradish, crème fraîche and capers with fried salmon on top.Read More
Traveling with food as a main interest means that there is always a chance to be surprised. You can look at pictures of all the dishes around the world and still don't have a clue what they will taste like.
This is a recipe that I had to figure out by myself. I got inspired by a dish at a
