A taste of some typically Frisian culture:
Tsiis - (Dutch: Kaas) Cheese: a typically Frisian cheese with spiked with cloves.
Frisian Dry Sausage is another speciality of this northern province.
Fryske Sűkerbôle - (Dutch: Suikerbrood) Frisian Sugar Bread: baked with pearl sugar, cinnamon, and ginger.
In Fryslân (Friesland) it is still an tradition to give a Frisian Sugar Bread to mothers who just gave birth to a girl.
(Note that sugar bread is now eaten by many Dutch people)
Frisian Longhouse: a 'head-neck-body' style farmhouse which consists of a residence (the head), the kitchen (the neck), attached to a barn or shed (body). The harvest was stacked in the attic or in high open barns located near the stable.
