Gourmet Gouda Cheese

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.

We will be adding exciting new Gourmet Gouda Cheeses frequently, so come back soon!

Marieke Penterman and her team are responsible for this handcrafted, traditional Gouda that is made, using the time-tested Old World, Old Dutch world in this case, cheesemaking methods. The Holland's Family Cheese team transforms fresh, raw cow's milk from their own cows milk on the family farm into award-winning cheese. The equipment, cultures, herbs and spices are all imported from Holland. The fresh cow's milk is piped directly from the first milking of the day into the processing vat. The curd is hand packed into 18 pound forms before going under the press. It is then brined for 60 hours. The wheels are then transferred to the special curing room and aged on Dutch pine planks which absorb the liquid as the cheese ages. Marieke Mature Gouda is 6-9 months old, rich and full-flavored with a subtle bite and caramel notes. Pair this gourmet Gouda cheese with dried cherries and candied pecans, Zinfandel or spiced rum. This truly amazing gourmet cheese made it to the top - it was awarded the 2013 Grand Champion of the U.S. Championship Cheese read more...
