Slow Beer Braised Oxtail

I am so lucky to call The Albert Cuyp Market in Amsterdam, my local market.  It’s such a great slice of daily life here.  And, as part of their sales of practically everything under the sun, there is of course food.  The market has some really tasty little treasures.  You won’t see them at first glance, you have to look a little closer to see the international delicacies, or the typically Amsterdam classics.  I take my culinary tour clients along the market and let them taste the best fresh stroopwaffels, the classic Belgian style fries, loempia, and of course some herring – the original Dutch fast food.  I love taking them to the spice shop and telling them about how wars were fought over these flavours.  Although some are surprised to hear of the lengths that people went to add some taste to their 17th century European food, not me, I’d fight for my right to spice any day.
