AVAILABLE IN ARNHEM | My experience in a home restaurant
Petra Dielman, blogger on ArnhemLife and hobbychef on AirDnD.nl, decided to give it a shot herself and booked a dinner at the home restaurant of Anneleen in Arnhem. She wrote a blog about her experience:
I’m sure you’ve all heard of AirBnB, spending a night at a local’s home instead of sleeping in a hotel. Now there is also something similar, but then in the food department!
Yesterday I had the pleasure to try out a college AirDnD home restaurant. Anneleen made me and a friend a fantastic 4 course Italian meal. We were welcomed into her home near the center of Arnhem, this was only a short walk form my home -but still, never had I been in this particular street.
The dinner table was already set and we were invited to take place as Anneleen talked about why she started her home AirDnD restaurant. A passion for cooking and meeting new people, AirDnD created the perfect platform for her to combine the two!
The 4 course meal started with two fried risotto balls. Very delicious, like a vegetarian “bitterbal” ;). A nice glass of Chardonnay brought back memories of a holiday in Rome, for a moment I forgot I was in rainy, cold Arnhem. Next up was a portobello mushroom filled with blue cheese, and as a person not too keen on blue cheese I did like it! The cheese was not too strong and as my friend and I discussed Anneleen’s beautiful furniture I took my last zip of white wine.
This, because the next course was lasagna and a red wine was suggested. One can really taste the love Anneleen has for cooking in every one of the courses! I wish I could eat here every day :).
For dessert we had a cheese cake (we would call it a “kwark taart”) in a small glass. Just lovely to finish the meal with. It was really nice to meet Anneleen, and talk over coffee before we left her cozy home.
