The Dutch use the same French word for mayonnaise as the English do, but if you’ve seen Pulp Fiction
, you may recall the fantastic scene where John Travolta quips about the ‘little differences’ in Europe. And how the Dutch eat their fries
with mayonnaise. It’s true folks, we do drown them in that sh...uh…mayonnaise. But any old mayonnaise it ain’t. Homemade Dutch mayonnaise
is nothing like the fake chemical stuff many supermarkets sell these days. It’s rich and creamy and very grown up. It’s also dead easy to make yourself.
If you want to order fries with mayo in Holland, ask for patat met (literally, 'fries with').
