In this month's International Concepts, uncover vegetarian spins on Dutch staples like bitterballen (a croquette filled with a creamy ragout) as well as the versatile Dutch syrup known as stroop, which tops classic Dutch pancakes and poffertjes (mini pancakes). Take inspiration from health-forward twists on traditionally indulgent dishes, too -- think pizza crusts made with spelt or maca-infused hot chocolate. Also discover plant-based burgers presented in an over-the-top fashion that's Instagram-worthy and craveable to vegans and meat-eaters alike.
