Amsterdam Foodie

British by birth and Dutch by choice, I’m a writer, cook and avid foodie who has lived and worked in Amsterdam since 2006. Amsterdam Foodie began as a few notes about the best (and worst) restaurants in Amsterdam on MySpace soon after I arrived, and migrated to the earliest version of the website you see today in 2007. Since starting this site, I’ve published my own cookbook, Vicky Hampton’s Working Lunch, and created an audio guide to my adoptive city’s food scene, A Gastronomic Journey in Amsterdam.
