… since that last blog post. Time to get back into the fun – and I can’t wait!
This summer was spent in comfort and relaxation, a lot of it in and around the house, as everyone had left Houten, leaving behind a totally calm and quiet village, with lots of really nice summer days. As usual, when things are well, time passes quickly…

A summer of contrasts… from a Hanseatic city to modern gastronomic creativity!
