About the tour

Great for breakfast lunch or dinner, Dutch pancakes are always a winner! Simple ingredients and minimal cooking skills are required. Learn about the history of pannenkoeken, and traditional combinations of toppings, from sweet to savoury. I’ll be cooking with my favourites – apple and bacon!

Why are they tip-supported?

We are running these tours on a tip-supported basis to make them as accessible as possible. They are free to book and join, but you have the option to tip the guide during the tour.

Would suggest shortening the time waiting for the mixture to be ready to cook by making “ a batch I made earlier” so not having to kill time. Could do without the cats and dog playing a dominant part. After lifting the cat down from the work surface, hands were not washed prior to resuming cooking the pancakes.

What a lovely tour. Lee welcomed us all into her home to have two Dutch pancakes. She taught us so much about the history of the pancakes, and so many other yummy delights from The Netherlands. I do love the Dutch tours so much, and this one definitely did not disappoint. It did however make me quite hungry. I do have a cheat with my little box of the mix from Deen. 😉 Thank you for the relaxing visit to your home & the yummy pancakes. Bon Appetite! Happy travels all.
