For many foodies the tip of North Holland is unexplored territory. Yet there is so much to discover here. Fish of course, both freshwater and from the salty waters of the Wadden Sea. But also scrumptious local products. The duck from Wieringen was considered to be the best from the Wadden area and the fresh vegetables and herbs from De Groene Stek in Fort Westoever's garden are simply delicious.
Shrimp from the Wadden is a true delicacy. Tag along with a shrimp fisher and taste them, straight from the Wadden Sea World Heritage Site.
Fresh, spicy and juicy. The best garlic comes from Slootdorp. The favourite of famous chefs.
Vegetables and herbs with a story to tell. Discover them in Jan Lont's museum garden.
Drink what is produced locally, locally. Taste the beers from Stadsbrouwerij Helderse Jongens.
Some chefs also have green fingers. Taste the region in Fort Westoever.
