Dutch Cheese Tray

The Dutch produce an impressive array of cheeses, including Edam, Gouda and the seasonal Meadowkraas. Add some pears, nuts, crackers, rye bread and you have a meal! Wash it all down with a Dutch beer such as Amstel or Heineken.

Edam, Gouda, Meadowkaas

Here is a little more information about the cheeses:

  • Gouda, which is named after a city in the Netherlands, is a semi-hard cheese made from cows milk. It has a toffee-like flavor that goes well with fruit, dark bread, beer and wine.
  • Edam is a pressed, hard cheese made from cow’s milk. It is similar to gouda, but is has less fat and more flavor. It tastes great when eaten on crackers or bread with fruit such as pears, apples and cherries. It pairs well with a Pinot Noir.
  • Meadowkaas is a gouda-like cheese made from cow’s milk. It is only made during the spring when the cows are grazing on meadow grass. It pairs well with sliced pears and walnuts.
