The Third in my Food & Travel series:
The Appeltaart & Amsterdam
Cafe Winkel Appeltaart
Dutch Apple Pie
When I asked a couple of friends what I should do in Amsterdam, I got a resounding "GO TO CAFE WINKEL!" And, order the appeltaart!
And it was excellent advice — as you can see! Cafe Winkel is located in the Jordaan (I loved this Amsterdam neighborhood) and has a very European al fresco vibe. Several copycat recipes can be found online. This one looks pretty good ... but I doubt anything can beat the deep crust, rich apple flavor of the real deal.
Home of the yellow tulip, my favorite!
