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, created an audio guide to my adoptive city’s food scene, A Gastronomic Journey in Amsterdam, and launched a Restaurant Guide to Amsterdam.

If (like me) you can’t afford to eat out in restaurants all the time, you need this cookbook to spice up your lunch! The print version is the price of a simple meal; the e-book version the price of a craft beer 🙂
