    Episode 9: Proeftijd Kerstspecial

    First aired: Tuesday, 22 December 2015 at 17.00 hours

    In the Christmas episode of Proeftijd we focus on the most delicious meal of the year: the Christmas dinner! We investigate what kind of things are on the menu in our region. Therefore we visit a culinary Christmas market in Hemelum, we go hunting in Gasselte, we cook vegan in Groningen and we visit the ‘voedselbank’ in Beilen.

    What's on the Christmas menu in the region? That’s what this episode of Proeftijd is about. On the cozy christmas market ‘Flinke Winter Favorieten’ in Hemelum we meet entrepreneurs from the region with delicious Christmas treats.

    For many people, wild food is a favourite on the Christmas dish. Host Leonie Sinnema investigates how the hunting game works. Hunting is a contentious issue, how do the hunters in Gasselte deal with that?

    In recent years, it has become increasingly important to be conscious about what your eating. What’s on the Christmas menu if you don’t eat meat or fish? Helinja Rider is a true vegan and passionate about cooking. She teaches us that vegan food does not have to be complicated to prepare.

    A Christmas dinner is often quite expensive. People who are struggling financially, sometimes depend on the ‘voedselbank’ for their Christmas dinner. We take a look behind the scenes with the volunteers of the ‘voedselbank’ in Beilen. High school students from the school next door show what you can prepare with the contents of a parcel from the ‘voedselbank’.

    We round of in Hemelum with a toast to a lovely Christmas and of course a delicious and cozy Christmas dinner!
