Who is Aaltje?

In 1803 Aaltje was the first Amsterdam kitchen maid who had the idea to gather her recipes. The first Dutch cookbook was born, awfully useful for other kitchen maids. The book was reprinted numerous times and endlessly improved. Aaltje’s cookbook is often seen as the symbol for the new path the Dutch cuisine slowly took.
