Gouda cheese is named after the old Dutch town of Gouda, a well-known tourist attraction in the summer for its weekly cheese market. It is considered one of the most famous cheeses in the world.
The world-famous Gouda cheese is a semi-hard cheese made from pasteurised cow’s milk with a rich, full flavour. The taste and texture depend on the age of the cheese.
A short ripening period produces ‘young cheese’ with a creamy flavour. The longer ripened ‘extra vintage cheese’ is harder with a full, strong flavour. The older the cheese, the more intense and strong its flavour.
The fact that Gouda cheese is eaten with a drink, a meal, in a sandwich or even as dessert shows the unlimited potential of this quality cheese. Gouda cheese can be used in many ways: as a snack, in a sandwich, in soups, sauces, melted, but also as a topping. With Gouda cheese you have plenty of options!
