Get to Know Gouda

Find out more about one of the oldest cheeses in the world.

Gouda is a scrumptious semisoft cheese that has a rich flavour and smooth texture.

Records of Gouda cheese date back to 1184, making it possibly one of the oldest cheeses in the world still being made today. And considering it’s one of the more popular cheeses in the world, it has a proven taste track record.

Named after the city of Gouda in the Netherlands, this Dutch cheese is actually pronouned “how-da”. So instead of Get to Know Gouda, perhaps this should be called How About Some Gouda.
