Traditionally, when we think of goudas we think of rich, hard-pressed cow’s cheeses bursting with flavor crystals—until now. Goat milk gouda: it’s a game changer. Made from the pasteurized milk of Saanen goats in the Brabant region of southern Holland, the cheese is set in large wheels, wrapped in wax, and then taken to famed affineur Betty Koster at Fromagerie L'amuse to be aged for a short (short for a gouda, that is) period of six months.
This gouda has everything we love about a hard goat cheese: creamy and earthy. Yet, everything we enjoy in a gouda: a caramel-y finish. We recommend pairing this exceptional cheese with a crisp, spicy fruity beer such as a Berliner Weisse.
