Rotterdam fishery Ruud den Haan won newspaper AD's annual test for the best herring in the Netherlands. "This is something you can only dream of", Christian den Haan said to the newspaper on Friday.
After years of scoring at least a 9 in the National Herring Test, this year Ruud den Haan scored a 10 from the judges. "A full creamy and salty taste. School example of everything that makes the Hollandse Nieuwe a real delicacy", the judges said.
