New Dutch Culinary Idiom — Wij Gaan de Bietenberg Op

By July 15, 2011

Follow me on:

Roast Beet Salad with Chevre & Mint
This week's Dutch foodie idiom is:
Wij gaan de bietenberg op.

This saying is used to express that everything's going wrong, but the literal meaning is "We are going up the beet mountain.'' Don't ask me what that's about. Your guess is as good as mine...

Best beet recipes:

  • Beet & Pear Smoothie (Smoothie met Biet en Peer)
  • Pickled Beet Salad with Ash-Coated Goat's Cheese (Geweckte Bietensalade met As-Geitenkaas)
  • Pink Beet & Orange Soup
