The cuisine in the Netherlands, generally takes advantage of local agricultural produce, as well as fish and seafood. Beef, chicken and pork are all popular, and there are many dishes based around these.
For more than 250 years, the Netherlands ruled over the Dutch East Indies (Dutch: Nederlands-Indië) - which has since become the independent state of Indonesia - and this colonial past has left its mark in Dutch cuisine. Indonesian food is very popular in the Netherlands, and even "Chinese" restaurants generally offer some Indonesian dishes. Furthermore some Indonesian dishes, such as nasi goreng (fried rice with spices and meat - usually chicken or pork) have been adopted as Dutch too. There are even some dishes, such as Spekkoek, a type of spicy pastry dessert, which combine Dutch and Indonesian influences.
