A common ingredient in the food here is potatoes. One more is sheep's cheese. Give them a go if they're not already a part of your food repertoire.

You're unlikely to need too much persuading to have a nibble of rijstepap (rice pudding), a sweet treat that'll make you want to start a new life here.
Beerenburg is most definitely worth sampling. Mixed or straight up? The bar person ought to have a few tasty suggestions.
Don't let a difference in language get in the way of a good holiday! Make your journey to Kop van Overijssel a more engaging one by memorising some expressions in the local language. To start with, try to get your tongue around "Hoe gaat het? ". It means "how are you?" "Goeienavond", which means "good evening", is another one you might need.
