I can still hear her say it. “We’ve got everything Aad! This will be the first barbecue without meat or fish!’
Jo stood proud as a peacock with a bag full of vegetables in her hands. “This is going to be a party Aad! No more legs needed for barbecuing. I can’t believe this was in 2017. How fast those years go.
Who else is in for a tradition? As soon as the sun returns in the Netherlands, the first Dutch people do is gathering all the equipment for a fantastic barbecue. Salads, sausages, satay, baguette with herb butter and of course ice cold beer!
You will find people all in the Netherlands baking or roasting in the backyard, in the park or on the balcony. No matter who you talk to, they will all have the same experience. The whole boat full of family, colleagues and friends. Everybody has been enjoying barbecueing on the pub boat for years. Even after so many hours at sea, I would like to be there all the time.
Even I have to admit that, no matter how tasty the burgers are, nothing can compete with a beautiful piece of bavette. The first time I encountered this was in Argentina.
If you haven’t been there yet, you can certainly try it here. Never in the world have I met people that cook a lot of meat; the Argentinians! Those thinly sliced slices, fresh off the grill, sprinkled with some coarse sea salt. As they say there: ‘Argentinian meat doesn’t just taste like meat, but like meat with love!’.
The discount is calculated over the price of the boat rent and the drinks. The price can vary per package. You don’t get a discount on the food.
