Our Featured Gourmet Gouda Cheese
Old Amsterdam is an aged Gouda cheese that is aged until the Dutch cheese makers are ready to release it, when they know the cheese had the perfect flavor and texture. The Westland cheese makers know what they're doing as the cheese won numerous awards over the years, in 2012 Sabor del Ano in Spain, and a golden award for 'Best Dutch Cheese' at the Nantwich Cheese Show.
Old Amsterdam has a pale yellowish interior, dotted with occasional small eyes and small crystalline nuggets of amino acids. The Dutch Gouda is rich and sweet in flavor with caramel and toasty notes and a long, balanced finish. The cheese is rather moist and easy to slice or cube.
At Gourmet-Food we like Old Amsterdam; a gourmet cheese with a consistent flavor, always appreciated and lovely with a good glass of red wine or port. When you use the cheese for a cheese sauce, you don't need much to add flavor to your dish. An absolute wonderful cheese.
We cut and wrap this gourmet cheese in wedges of 8 ounces and 1 pound. read more...
Browse our great selection of Gourmet Goudas and Gouda-type Cheese including the International Award winning Reypenaer and the ever popular Old Amsterdam. Gouda may be the best-known Dutch cheese type, and the name Gouda is derived from the Dutch city Gouda, but Gouda cheese is often imitated. Gouda and Gouda-style cheeses are recognizable in their shape, most of them are wheels, big wheels around 25 pounds in weight. As Gouda refers to a particular style cheese, there are of course many varieties; length of ageing, method of aging, ingredients used, rind color and herbs, or spices added. Try them all and you will experience that a Gouda is not necessarily a Gouda; let us know what you think by giving us your opinion in a product review.
