I am a food lover. I always liked to share foodie experiences with my family, friends, or new friends that I met. I will be pleased to show you the best of my city, through market tours or homemade meals. You will discover the best of our cuisine. If you’d like, you're welcome to join me on my visit to the market and de utrechstestraat shops. You're also welcome to my canal home appartment (1824) overlooking the Amstel river, the skinny bridge and hermitage museum. I'll prepare several Dutch amuses, snacks and dishes based on ingredients from the season which I buy preferably at the op air albert cuyp market or at the organic superMarqt around the corner.

Was erwartet Sie bei Fusina?
Pretty amazing ! Fusina is a very professional guide, she has offer us a lot of delicious traditional food of the netherlands. Many thanks for the interesting elucidations of historical stories of Amsterdam ! Fusina has a cheerful habit of mind. We had lots of fun together. I would like to book any activities coached by Fusina anytime :-)
I spend a lovely evening with Fusina at her beautiful home right in the center of Amsterdam. Fusina prepared a typical Dutch dinner including cheese, fresh herring, soup and sausages with mashed potatoes. Unfortunately I was already too full to have the home made pancakes 😂. All produce Fusina used were locally sourced and carefully selected. She also explained a lot about were the products come from, which Imreally liked. Fusina is a wonderful host, making me feel very welcome. Thanks for having me at your kitchen table 😍
Although the banter between us was great, i was disappointed. We did the lunch option since she wasnt available for the dinner option. She had shared that she hosted a dinner the night before for 12 people so i was impressed that she hosted us the next day. lovely apartment-no food smells were noted when we walked in. after some time, we went to dining area where she served us cheese and apple syrup. That was nice. next was bitterballen-rationed at 2 pieces for each. was warmed in toaster oven. next was a quiche or goat cheese tart-pretty small. (size of a half dollar) we got one each. we received the herring next-nice portion. straight from the box which in the end is ok-but i know when i host, i look at how i put things on a plate to serve.just looks nicer. we had the split pea soup next-warming on stove. i asked for a second serving and she literally was scraping the pot to get my serving. dessert was fine-dutch apple pancake. i felt for what we spent $140usd we shouldnt have received leftovers from the night before-i truly believe thats what we got. when i wrote her (basically the above info) her response was "what was leftovers? should i fish the herring out of the sea for you? it is wnat it is" i found her response inapprpriate as in she insulted my intelligence now. no-i dont expect her to go fishing herself for that appetizer. but what i do expect is bitterballen to be fresh and the quiche or goat tarts. and portions should have been more and welcomed. For that amount of money-i could've eaten at a restaurant and food wouldve been made to order. i wish i could post the pics but yea 6 bitterballen only! warmed up in toaster oven. i wouldve been ok paying 40 euros each versus the 70 we paid but hey it is what it is, is what i was told.
