What you'll do

We will meet eachother in a very nice and cozy hotel. They have a lunch room, where we can go and baking the syrupwaffles.
A syrupwaffle is a real Dutch Icon and is known for worldwide. Originally this waffle is coming from Gouda, a small town in the Netherlands.
First we will make the dough together and will start with preparing the syrup. Because it is the best to leave the dough at peace for a while, we will go a for a small walk in the city of Alkmaar. I will tell you something about the history of the town, and will show you the hotspots and you will learn about Alkmaar.It is only a half an hour walk.
After the walk, we will go back to bake the syrupwaffles. The hardest thing to do, is cutting them to dripping the syrup a the waffle. Although the shape is not always a succes, we can summarize the taste in 1 word every time: DELICIOUS!
At the end we will decorate the syrupwaffles with chocolate and all different toppings. And if there are any waffles left..you can take them with you!

Let me introduce myself … I’m Ellen, 40 years old and living in Heiloo. A village just below Alkmaar. You can rightly call me a true Noordhollandse, because I have been living in this region all my life. As a teenager I already dreamed of showing people showing them the real Netherlands.
During my tours I not only tell you things worth knowing about the Netherlands from the past, but especially what life is like here right now. What is on the dinner table, how do our kids grow up, how do we think about social issues and why are many Dutch people speaking English.

Ein schönes Erlebnis und sehr empfehlenswert. Ellen ist eine tolle Gastgeberin und hat auch interessantes über Alkmaar erzählen können. Der Preis ist allerdings zu hoch.

Das Waffelbacken mit Ellen war sehr nett und die kleine Stadtführung zwischendurch eine schöne Auflockerung. Die Waffeln schmecken super und können sich fürs erste Mal auch sehen lassen :)

Ellen heeft de workshop goed voorbereid: het juiste materiaal is aanwezig en ze weet wat er moet en gaat gebeuren. Er waren twee nationaliteiten aanwezig tijdens de workshop, maar hier hebben we geen last van gehad: Ellen vertelde afwisselend de informatie en liet een groep niet telkens wachten. Wanneer zij aan het vertellen was aan de andere groep, hadden wij iets te doen. Oftewel: een leuke, gezellige en vooral lekkere workshop tijdens je bezoek aan Alkmaar!

Der Worshop war sehr gut organisiert und Ellen war eine tolle Leiterin! Sie hat Spaß an ihrer Arbeit und das wirkte sich auf die ganze Atmosphäre aus. Die Sirupwaffeln schmeckten wunderbar! Wir haben den Workshop mit unseren Töchtern (16 und 12) gemacht. Die Kombination von Backen und Rundgang hat auch sie angesprochen. Ein prima Erlebnis zwischen Kultur, Geschichte und Geschmack!
