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.

One thing is consistent when it comes to Gouda—it’s a true crowd-pleaser. Kids, grownups or cheese lovers will agree that this cheese is often fantastic and delicious.
History about the Gouda

In the Netherlands, archeologists 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 received the name of a town in southern Holland. Indeed, this 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.

 Gouda fast became a hub for cheesemakers and farmers to bring their wares.  They were weighting the cheese and sold it in the town square.
The tradition still continues to this day on Thursday mornings during the summer months, when wheels of Gouda wrapped in wax rinds are proudly displayed on the city’s ancient cobblestones.

 

Enjoy this cheese with a delicious Pinot Noir from Burgundy such as Hautes Cotes de Nuits.
