Our Featured Dutch Gourmet Cheese
Leyden Cheese is the Dutch gourmet cheese for you if you like cumin, because this seed is mixed into the curd. This authentic cheese is in The Netherlands known as 'Leidse kaas' (cheese from the famous old Dutch city of Leiden). The cheese is made in flat wheels of varying sizes and the farmstead version carries the city's symbol of two crossed keys.
Our Leyden cheese is made by one of the large Dutch cheese manufacturers Friesland Campina and has a natural yellow rind which covered with red wax.
Leyden cheese paste is similar to Gouda cheese but it is scattered with seeds. It smells and tastes strongly of cumin, intensifying as it matures.
We cut and wrap this cheese in wedges of 1 pound and 8 ounces. read more...
