For many Dutch snackers probably the solution: now you don’t have to choose between a Kroket (croquette) or a frikandel. These are both typical Dutch snacks. The krokodel is a Burgundian croquette with frikandel ragout. Jeroen Balkenende and Freek Haverman living in Breda (in the South of the Netherlands) came up with the idea. They went to chef Guilaume de Beer from restaurant ‘Breda’ in Amsterdam. He rolled the first krokodellen by hand, so that they could taste it during the ‘Frikandeldisco’ in Amsterdam at Café Sanders in September 2016. From there it went really fast. read more
