Gouda Cheeses originated in Holland over 800 years ago and were named after the towns from which they originated. Wisconsin Gouda and Edam are recognized nationally for there flavor and texture.

Young gouda is an excellent melting cheese, so we love to grate it into casseroles, gratins and pastas. If you have a smoked gouda, pair it with hot chicken or turkey sandwiches or any grilled meats that are close at hand.
Depending on whether your gouda is young, aged, smoked or flavor infused, we tend to enjoy it with slightly sweet beverages that complement its nutty, slightly fruity flavor.
