INA HerringFest is back!

Spend an evening going Ducth! The third annual HerringFest is coming back again with even larger and more high profile than the previous years. INA organizes a unique Traditional HerringFest completed with delicious traditional Dutch foods, to meet old friends and make new ones and have a lot of fun!

A typical celebration of Dutch delicacy called Hollandse Nieuwe (Dutch New) – also known as Maatjesharing, which is an especially mild salt herring, which is made from young immature herrings.

The herrings are ripened for a couple of days in oak barrels in a salty solution, or brine. The pancreatic enzymes which support the ripening make this version of salt herring especially mild and soft.

When: 18 June 2013 starting 19.00-21.30 hrs
Venue: Available upon your confirmation

Herrings are caught between the end of May and the beginning of July in the North Sea, before the breeding season starts. This is because herrings at this time are unusually rich in oils (over 15%) and their roe and milt have not started to develop.

The first barrel of Hollandse Nieuwe is traditionally sold at auction for charity. In the Netherlands, there are many popular celebrations about this event like the Vlaardingen Herring Festival and Vlaggetjesdag in Scheveningen.

We request the honor of your presence for the HerringFest. Grace the occasion with your presence. We will be glad to have you with us.
