Smoked Processed Gouda - cow's milk semi soft cheese - 1 lb/454 gr, Holland.The smoked version of the world-famous Dutch Gouda cheese. Delightfully smoky and full of taste. It keeps all the subtle textures, with the pleasant addition of a hearty smoked taste. Smoked cheese Gouda is produced in Holland in some of the world's most modern, computerized dairy plants. Yet, the Gouda cheese is still smoked in ancient brick ovens over smoldering hickory chip embers. The brown, smoky rind is not only edible, it's the best part of the cheese! Compliments: Melt it atop your favorite sandwich. Serve as an appetizer with crusty french bread or crackers or as an excellent addition to the cheese tray, cubed with a toothpick. Appropriate wines: Pairs well with a rich earthly Cote du Rhone (Syrah), a fruity Sauvignon Blanc from California or New Zealand, or an inexpensive morio-muskat. Smoked Gouda pair with a dark beer for an enjoyable cheese experience.
