Our friends with young kids have been a few times and were quite used to the extra strange experience of cooking bread on a stick. Most people had burned dough, but we saw a couple of pieces that looked edible.

I don’t know who the artist is, but it is posted outside of the Van Gogh museum in Amsterdam.

I think this is the right bridge as featured in the painting, so I tried to frame the photo to match.
