We work closely with cheese selector and importer Essex St. Cheese to source this incredibly aged gouda. The cheese is produced in northern Holland by the Cono Co-op and then is aged by affineur and cheesemonger Betty Koster. Betty ages these wheels at a slightly warmer temperature than typically aged gouda. The result is a deep flavor, plenty of tyrosine crunch (proteins) and a texture that is not too dry and brittle. It is creamy with distinctive hazelnut flavor and deep caramel notes.
Farm/Producer/Importer: Cono Co-op/Fromagerie L'Amuse/Essex St Cheese
Place: Beemster region, The Netherlands
Milk Type: Cow
