Living abroad you often miss the simple things from home, such as the food. No longer. Here is a guide to the shops selling expat food products in the Netherlands.
The English Cake Lady
The English Cake Lady is Lucie Kenny, a resident of Amsterdam for the last 10 years, and an experienced and enthusiastic home-baker for many more.
Our cupcakes appeal to consumers as a mid-morning snack, afternoon tea option, or a light dessert, and are excellent birthday gifts for friends or colleagues. We specialise in original cake flavours and types, re-inventing the Bakewell Tart, Tiramisu or Strawberry Cheesecake in cupcake form, as well as prettily-decorated simple classics such as Vanilla, Lemon or Chocolate.
frank@fair is the name of my recently opened shop in the Centre of Amsterdam. The shop is stacked with Fair Trade food. From delicious chocolate, beautiful wines, ice cream, fruit juices and fresh fruit to olive oils, coffee, tea, rice, spices and sauces.
Also bed linen, towels and bath towels in wonderful colours, sheets, tea towels and sleeping bags for your baby or toddler. And our soaps, bath salts, handcreams and even condoms are also Fair Trade!
Come and discover our range! We also deliver at home. Contact us for the possibilities.
