A few years ago I used to report to a manager based in Amsterdam, where my
$work maintains a rather large data centre and quite a few staff.  As a
result I was fortunate enough to go there several times and spend a bit of
time.  The food on offer appeared to be of a reasonable standard.  I
particularly enjoyed some of the Indonesian food I had, but there was
nothing particularly bad about the rest.  On the whole I really like
Amsterdam & the Netherlands and it wouldn't take a lot to convince me to go
work there, if I were looking for another job.

 In any case, what's wrong with a culture that has a whole class of food

Alcohol that, I note, comes from other nations...

Humbug.  Don't know why you don't get yourself a job up in Huddersfield,
though.   :-)
