THE CHEESE : Too Good to be ‘Gouda’!

Authentic Boeren Goudse Oplegkaas (Aged Artisan Gouda) is peerless in taste, with a sweet mild flavor that blooms in the mouth, a well-structured aftertaste with a light acidity and the warm caramel taste that characterizes most Gouda. Its dense curd remains creamy and full even after it has been stored three or four years on wooden shelves. Boeren Goudse Oplegkaas, as Aged Artisan Gouda is called in Dutch, is made from raw milk only during the summer season, when cows are grazed on the open pastures of the peat meadows or polders of the Green Hart region, between the cities of Amsterdam, Rotterdam and Utrecht. Boeren Goudse Oplegkaas cheeses must age for at least one year but can age up to four years (opleg means ‘aged’ in Dutch).
