The site for food lovers in The Hague and surroundings
You can now place an online order for almost 300 various fish products from Schmidt Zeevis. Ranging from live lobster to special lobster dishes, smoked salmon, wild Scottish salmon, salmon mousse. Of course also fresh fish and Oma (granny) Schmidt’s special fish soup. It is delivered directly to your home; if ordered before 12 noon, you will receive it fresh on your doorstep the next day.
Schmidt Zeevis has 20 refrigerated trucks with separate cooling and deepfreeze compartments that follow a pre-set route. The driver will call you around half an hour before delivery. Tip: you can find the useful fish calendar on their website.
They have a user friendly website where you can choose between free range and organic; between beef, pork, chicken or goat. Their farmers are not anonymous; they are mentioned on the website. They have good photography so that you can see what you buy. Everything is delivered to your doorstep frozen; then you have your shopping for the week. It is a good change from the Smaakweb butchers, however, nothing beats the fresh product! For our busy Smaakweb friends it is good to have something reasonable in your freezer; much better than the discount butchers!
More and more people are now familiar with the beautiful organic products which Fattoria La Vialla has to offer direct from Italy. Recently they had a lot of exposure in the Delicious Magazine. Order the brochure and be surprised! Delicious olive oil, organic wines (which keep on winning prizes) and lots of pots with anything you can imagine. Once you are a customer they keep you interested by sending little gifts and they even invite you to lunch at the Fattoria! When you order their delivery is very fast.
Fattoria La Vialla

Jeroen van Wieren, who was a chef in various restaurants (Corona, Amstel Hotel, Bodega Keyser) discovered SALT. He studied all the various types, learned a lot and found even more varieties on the internet. You can buy many different types like Fleur de sel, salt from the Himalaya etc. They even organize salt tastings now in Amsterdam. Have a look at the Foodtube film on Foodtube.nl www.foodtube.nl/Zout
We were looking for Pane Carasau and found the GranSardegna website, a webshop specialised in products from Sardinia. Fast delivery service.
Have a look at the servings for an espresso machine, a lot cheaper than Illy and certainly a good cup of coffee, in three different flavours.
Direct import of special olive oils from Italy, Spain, France and Greece for special restaurants and the hobby cooks at home. They supply 13 Michelin starred restaurants and perhaps also yourself?
