The cheese market in Holland is changing rapidly. For years, Holland was known for Gouda and Edam, two simple cheeses that appeal to the masses. But as tastes have moved upscale, the popularity of Gouda and Edam has waned. With almost every cheese plant in Holland geared up for the production of these two cheeses, a gap between supply and demand threatened to put the smaller cheesemakers out of business. While many got bought out by larger competitors, several shifted their strategy to new and inventive specialty cheeses. Since the mid 1990's, many new cheeses have been developed in Holland. Rouveen, the maker of this cheese, is one of the pioneers of the specialty movement.
Rouveen's Walnut Gouda turns plain, old, boring Gouda into something fantastic and exciting. A cheese you will crave endlessly, Walnut Gouda is everything you expect it to be and more. Subtle yet flavorful, the walnut adds a sensual warmth to the basic Gouda cheese, whose texture is not gummy like many Goudas on the market. A truly surprising cheese, we recommend serving Walnut Gouda at your next party or get-together.
