Wb eats with students | Double meal


If TV commercials are anything to go by students are incapable of cooking
anything more than a deepfreeze pizza or pouring boiling water over a
packet of noodles. Is this also the archetype in the Wageningen student
houses? Wb decided to find out for itself for a few weeks and joined
students for their evening meal.

Part 4: Rijnsteeg 13c
Inhabitants: 10 (one from Diedenoort, the rest from the university)
Characteristics: 2 part-time vegetarians, always dessert, almost empty beer
crate, one inmate never joins in the meal
Favourite: ice cream with chocolate sauce out of a bottle (Tejo)

There are five people busy cooking food in the kitchen around six o’clock
on Thursday. That’s not so that they don’t have to do the washing up, the
Dutch tradition being that if you cook you are excused. Birgit van den
Berk, the Diedenoort student and a friend of hers who’s visiting don’t feel
like the Jollof rice dish that Lia Wieldraaijer is cooking. Birgit: “I
don’t like strange things. I’d rather eat potatoes, meat and vegetables.
