I am Dutch, but I don't sing like a Dutch nightingale and my choir doesn't sing a Dutch concert. I was, however suffering from the Dutch disease in the eighties.
I had a Dutch uncle, who stroke a Dutch bargain, after screwing up his Dutch courage. It was a Dutch consolation that he got a prize wrapped in Dutch gold.
He dutched his life , for he always spoke Double Dutch, when he and his friends went Dutch. He got a Dutch treat and after that he committed the Dutch act by putting his head in a Dutch oven.
During the late 17th century, the Dutch system of producing these cast metal cooking vessels was more advanced than the English system. The Dutch used dry sand to make their molds, giving their pots a smoother surface. Consequently, metal cooking vessels produced in the Netherlands were imported into Britain. In 1704, an Englishman named Abraham Darby decided to go to the Netherlands to observe the Dutch system for making these cooking vessels. Four years later, back in England, Darby patented a casting procedure similar to the Dutch process and began to produce cast-metal cooking vessels for Britain and her new American colonies. Thus the term “Dutch oven” has endured for over 300 years, since at least 1710
