Sold per 100g.
Gouda from The Netherlands is one of the world’s most popular cheeses.
At first, this artisan made farmhouse gouda has a natural yellow colour, notes of sweetness with caramel flavours. The result is a high quality smooth bodied creamy cheese displaying strong black truffle flavours and coated with black wax.
In the Netherlands, archeologists have discovered equipment for producing cheese that dates back to 200 BC. That’s over 2,000 years of cheesemaking tradition. The classic cheese Gouda, has been made since at least 1184, making it one of the oldest recorded cheeses still being crafted today.
Cheese starts with milk, and milk begins with livestock. Holland’s abundant green grasses and mild temperatures make it a perfect environment for cows, which graze on the country’s lush pastures.
Gouda is named after a town in southern Holland—the town where the cheese was distributed, not where it was made. In the Middle Ages, certain municipalities held exclusive rights to weigh and sell cheese. Gouda was one of these towns.
