6 Recipes with Gouda for Cheese Lovers

February 20, 2013

A collection of our favorite recipes featuring the Holland's favorite cheese—Gouda.

Gouda Cheese

Gouda goodness. Rolls off the tongue nicely doesn’t it? And Gouda cheese does a pretty fabulous job of making your taste buds happy as it does.

Cheese producers in the Netherlands began making the big, beautiful and wax-coated wheels in the sixth century and haven’t stopped since—according to The Food Lover’s Companion by Sharon and Ron Herbst, Gouda makes up 60 to 65 percent of the country’s cheese production. But Gouda isn’t strictly a Dutch product, the cheese is produced authentically throughout Europe and even by families in the states.

The taste of gouda takes many forms, from the rich, almost nutty aged varieties to the mellow and soft younger cheeses. A tinge of sweetness is typical and the uses are endless. We suggest serving slices of a younger version atop sandwiches, and trying a smoked Gouda in creamy mac and cheese or savory sundered tomato muffins for depth and full-bodied flavor.
