Midwest Living Review
In the Midwest, it's easy to find an Irish pub or a German Brathaus to stumble into. But a true Dutch bakery? Not so much. That's why people flock from near and far to deBoer's. They fill their shopping bags with crisp, buttery krakelingen cookies, Dutch crust bread and almond-filled banket. Sit in the restaurant and dine on pigs-in-the-blanket or hearty pea soup, and if you make it for the annual Tulip Time festival each May, you'll be treated to Hutspot, a mixture of mashed potatoes and carrots with Dutch sausage and light rye bread. The deBoer's emigrated in 1956 from Kollum, Netherlands, where the family had been baking for 150 years. Now the traditional Dutch food is served up by the family's fourth generation, Jacob deBoer and his sons. Eet smakelijk (eat well!) in Holland, Michigan, a town famous for its Dutch heritage.
