Q: What’s your favorite type of pie?
A: My favorite would be ‘appel taart’, or apple pie. While we don’t really call it a pie in Dutch (‘taart’ can also apply to cake, and while ‘vlaai’ is closer to a pie, this certainly doesn’t fall under it), I am very fond of our apple pie. Though don’t confuse it with ‘Dutch Apple Pie’, because trust me, it is nothing like that.
