Old Amsterdam Gouda
This black waxed, 12-18months old cheese has a glorious deep yellow colour and a slightly waxy, granular texture with medium sized holes. There is a hint of caramel in its pleasantly full taste. A multiple award winner and currently sold in 40 countries, it is produced by Westland a family run company in Holland.
Not unlike Emmentaler, this yellow-golden cheese from Norway has a subtle and slightly nutty, mildly salty flavour and is Gouda-like in its consistency. The ideal buffet cheese, Jarlsberg is becoming increasingly popular and can be found in American, Australian and even Japanese food shops.
