Who We Are

We are Arnoud and Gijs, two regular guys from Holland in their early twenties. Apart from some shared interests, we got one big love: FOOD! It all started when we sent each others pictures of all the great things that got lost in our stomach. Then the moment came when we realized this was too great to keep for ourselves. That’s why it felt like our duty to share it with you and the rest of the world.

Our philosophy for this blog is very simple: just share all of the good food that is around. And we do not discriminate any kind of food. Whether the food is homemade, bought at a take-away store or consumed in a restaurant, we try to share it with you guys.

Peace and enjoy!

    what is your favorite food?

    • dudewhatsmyfood February 18, 2012 at 12:35 #

      Oh what a difficult question! For me personally I cannot give you a specific answer. But what I can say with certainty is that I really like meat and especially lamb meat. Lamb meat is definitely a personal favorite.

      • Sara T February 22, 2012 at 15:16 #

        Thanks for stopping by my blog. Lamb is definately a favorite at our house, too. We make it a lot, which is pretty unusual for Americans (unless of course, it’s in a gyro… everybody loves gyros, but is afraid of a rack of lamb for some reason!!).

        You have a great site here!

        Sara

      • dudewhatsmyfood March 22, 2012 at 23:25 #

        No problem at all. I liked reading your post. A very good choice then I must say, since lamb is so delicious. A lamb gyro or a rack of lamb, there is always a right time for lamb! Glad to hear you like it too. I shall visit you blog again soon.

    well done…i’m hungry!

    • dudewhatsmyfood May 16, 2012 at 09:35 #

      Thanks! I know the feeling. That’s why I never read other blogs or write on this blog without some food around.

    Thanks for stopping by.I love rare lamb chops;but being a cheap old fart I don’t eat them as often as I like.I’m keeping my eye on you two rascals;looks like fun.Peace out.

    • dudewhatsmyfood May 22, 2012 at 00:08 #

      Haha I can imagine that the high prices of lamb chops hold you back, but doesn’t that make them taste even better when you do have them? Thanks for checking us out. Hopefully you’ll enjoy our other posts too.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog.

    I must say, I’m very jealous of all your travels, but I like seeing all the different things you guys find to eat. Very cool posts!

    • dudewhatsmyfood May 22, 2012 at 22:22 #

      No problem, keep up your good work! We are privileged that we can go to all kinds of places and we keep trying to eat as much different things as we can. Fortunately our hunger is never stilled.

  11. Michael May 22, 2012 at 17:28 #

    Can’t wait to see where your travels take you and what you’ll eat next. Lamb is also my favorite meat!

    • dudewhatsmyfood May 22, 2012 at 22:26 #

      Always nice to hear a fellow lamb meat lover. Well, keep an aye on our blog, I can give away that we will be both traveling this summer and that means a lot of (new) food coming up!

  12. My Mission: Tastes of SF May 23, 2012 at 05:23 #

    Thanks for visiting, your blog makes me want to go to Holland and EAT!

    • dudewhatsmyfood May 23, 2012 at 07:57 #

      No problem. You should come! Although not as famous as other cuisines, the Dutch cuisine is very varied and (therefore) very interesting.

  13. rosemcom May 23, 2012 at 18:14 #

    Hello Arnoud and Gijs! Thank you so much for liking my post “Free Range Fast Food” in my “Delightful Local Repast” blog. Really love the reviews in your blog…makes me want to travel there and sample everything! Cheers, Rose

    Greetings from the U.S. I’m glad you liked my blog “Chocolate Curiosities: A Traveler’s Tale of Cocoa-based Pastimes and Perversities” I like the photos on your site. Do you also post recipes?

    • dudewhatsmyfood June 3, 2012 at 16:49 #

      We liked the title of your post to;). We do post some recipes once in a while, but they are mostly not written down. It’s a lot of improvising.

  15. deliciousonadollar May 28, 2012 at 14:56 #

    Thanks so much for stopping by my blog: Delicious on a Dollar, and “liking” my Marinara Sauce. Writing about food is so fun, especially sharing what you discover. Your enthusiasm for good food is wonderful. I enjoyed reading your blog and shall stop back often.

    Hello, Arnoud and Gijs. Thank you for liking one of my posts in my blog. you blog is awesome! I’m going to Europe in the next September, and surely gonna use your blog as my food reference 😉

    • dudewhatsmyfood June 3, 2012 at 16:55 #

      Since Europe is so large and versatile, there is absolutely always something that you will enjoy. I hope you will discover a lot of food that you had never seen before. Thanks for your nice words. Greetings!

      • bhellabhello June 4, 2012 at 08:07 #

        Absolutely, I will! Truthfully, I am going to live in Porto, Portugal, for 2 years. I wonder how many breathtaking places I have to visit in Europe later on. Especially, for my food journey 😄

      • dudewhatsmyfood June 4, 2012 at 21:32 #

        Wow, that sounds great. Haha yeah, there’s a lot to see, do and eat so I’m sure you can fill all of your days with something great. There is one thing that I would love to try sometime from the Portuguese cuisine and that is Francesinha, some kind of sandwich that sounds and looks delicious. Look it up;)

      • bhellabhello June 5, 2012 at 01:48 #

        I have just googled it. It’s a Porto famous sandwich. I’m so eating it after I have arrived in Porto, haha. Thanks for the information!

      • dudewhatsmyfood June 5, 2012 at 11:11 #

        No problem. Just let me know how it tasted after eating it.

  21. Lara June 11, 2012 at 19:52 #

    • dudewhatsmyfood June 28, 2012 at 14:07 #

      No problem! Who doesn’t love food, right? Well, Libya really sounds like a great place for a culinary adventure. Maybe we could go there in the future.

    Hi guys, what a great blog you have here! Love it! Fun, fun. Thanks for stopping by my site too, by the way. Love your country, would be my choice of living out of Canada! Oh I just can imagine how awsome would be cooking in a kitchen of one of these cool floating houses you have in Amsterdan!
    Your sense of humor is a big inspiration. Cheers!

    • dudewhatsmyfood September 26, 2012 at 23:27 #

      Thanks a lot! Haha you mean a “woonboot”. I also would like to have one, but they are quite expensive. One of the things I really want to eat is “poutine”, so I have to go to Canada one time. I know, “poutine” probably isn’t the most culinary that Canada has to offer foodwise, but still.. fries, cheese and gravy. It just sounds awful and fantastic at the same time.

  25. ChgoJohn September 27, 2012 at 08:48 #

    Thanks for dropping by my blog today. I’ve had some wonderful time in Amsterdam, having visited there some 6 times. Queen’s Day is an event like none other the world over. What a good time!

    • dudewhatsmyfood October 17, 2012 at 23:50 #

      No problem at all. You are very right that Queen’s Day is an unique experience. Glad you like Amsterdam.
