Dutch cooking today - A nice Dutch recipe book

Over the Holiday season I found a really nice book: Dutch cooking today.

Written in English, this book includes many great colour photos and a lot of the old favourite Dutch recipes, including:

  • Dutch apple pie
  • Speculaas cookies
  • Hutspots
  • Uitsmijter
  • Dutch pea soup
I think this recipe book was written for two types of readers:
  1. Expats living in the Netherlands, who want to learn how to cook some traditional Dutch recipes while they live here and want to find things to do with the limited range of food available in supermarkets.
  2. Someone considering moving to the Netherlands who wants to know what "traditional Dutch food" really is.

I can't find the book on Amazon, but here's a comparison page for other online book stores:
