Museum Voorlinden has an exhibition about Anselm Kiefer. I dislike the museum, because it does not form part of the Dutch Museum Card. You have to pay your own hefty Euro 22 entrance fee for every exhibition, but it is a nice museum in a nice park. Modern and with nice exhibitions.

First of all A Happy 2022 to you all!
As with my Thai Curry Paste queeste I am trying to create my own ginger syrup.
1 cup Ginger root cuttings
1 cup sugar
2 cups water
A sniff of cinnamon
1/2 lemon juice
I’ve put all in a stainless steel pan and cooked them quickly onto cooking point and then let them simmer for 1/2 hour. Thereafter I cooled it down in the pan. I strained the ginger pieces out of the syrup and put them into a fridge container for use in my future curries. The syrup I poored in a small 1/2 liter bottle for future mixing with soda which creates a nice Gingerale, but also is very useful for sweetening curries….

The Result is Yummy!
Food is one of the subjects next to photography to continue with this blog.
Recently I got Thai Food infected by a very enthousiast niece who did an Internship in Bangkok for 6 months and loves Thai food. So I bought the Dutch translation of Thai Food and Cooking by Judy Bastyra and Becky Johnson.
A US reviewer wrote on Amazon:
This lovely book is artfully produced, with 2-3 attractive photographs per recipe, both of the food prep and the finished product.
This isn’t just a cookbook. It is a primer on Thai history, cooking techniques, ingredients, equipment, and more, with over 60 non-recipe pages.
The recipes are given both in metric and US measurements. For example: 900 ml / 1 1/2 pints / 3 3/4 cups vegetable stock.
The recipes are explained with clarity, so that even if one is unfamiliar with the dish, it’s easy to follow the instructions.
This book will help you produce beautiful, interesting, simple, delicious Thai meals.
I tried a recipe for a red Curry with shrimps and tempeh using a ready made red curry paste from an asian supermarket… Delicious and quickly prepared… Alas the book has no recipes to make your own paste. According to some people you should taste your own home made Thai curry paste. So I did some online research.
Just want to share the blog from Char, called Woks and Skillets, with 3 easy to make Thai Curry pasts:
The 2021 Mille Miglia was postponed to Juni 2021. I was able to take photo’s of it for the fourth time and on two days. One while the cars passed Arezzo in the thrird leg an the next day, when the car passed Monza.
On Flickr there is an album growing 2021 Mille Miglia
After my first Mille Miglia experience, the 2017 version, that I watched when the contenders passed the Furlo Pass, a pass in the Via Flaminia where under Vespianus they already dug a tunnel for the road, I got realy hooked . See my first 2017 Mille Miglia Flickr Album
In 2018 I watched them pass just north of Pesaro when driving to Pesaro. Album on Flickr: 2018 Mille Miglia
In 2019 I watched them pass Corinaldo. Probably the most beautiful Borgo (little City) of the Marche, or maybe the whole of Italy.2019 Mille Miglia (Corinaldo)
The photo’s above were taken in Immola of an Arnolt Bertone Bristol Bolide of 1954.
Here co driven by a Dutch Prince, Prince Berhard of Orange, who is a real estate tycone by his own merit and owns the Zandvoort Circuit that will be home to a F1 race this year.
Very apt now that Dutch F1 driver Max Verstappen is number one of the 2021 F1 Driver’s championship.
