Our 20 cuisine nights!



My husband and I have reached a very special milestone in our marriage. Since getting married, we’ve now done 20 cuisine nights! We started off with the countries of our cultural heritage – Dutch, English, Irish and Danish – and then branched off to explore all the continents. I’m so thankful to live in a world where there’s such diversity and so many different types of delicious food!




I’m not going to write too much about our cuisine nights (maybe another post to come), but I’m going to let the pictures do the talking.
