cheese review: marieke gouda

by nc on January 13, 2008 · 0 comments

Place of purchase: Surdyk’s
Title: Marieke Gouda, Thorp, WI

Description:
This farmhouse gouda is crafted from raw milk by Marieke Penterman, who learned to make cheese in Holland. This is the most authentic gouda made in the US: the sweet and nutty flavor intensifies with age, making it an excellent pair with toasty beer like Oktoberfest or Winter Ale.

Comments:
Gouda was probably the first real cheese I ever had; I don’t count the generic processed stuff we generally put on hamburgers. ;) This cheese is like the Gouda I remember, but so much better. It has a rather mild flavor, but is still strong enough to stand up with good wine or beer.
