Hi Steve,

Thanks for looking.

As for the cheese, Michiel has answered your question--most of the 
supermarket stuff is indeed bland, certainly for anyone used to French 
or Spanish cheeses. If you do buy from a local producer, like Michiel 
does, then you find more interesting stuff. But at the end of the day I 
think it is fair to say that while Dutch cheese is of good quality, the 
range of flavours is much more limited than in France or Spain.
