CHEESE OF THE DAY: MILD GOUDA
One of the Big Cheeses - Gouda - doesnt need much introduction to most people - a Dutch cheese with a slightly sweet & salty taste. It gets its name from the town of Gouda in the Netherlands, but as its name is not protected meaning it can be made and sold all around the world.
The Mild Gouda I ate this evening (whilst watching Bill & Teds Bogus Journey on TV) was made in Holland and was matured for only 4 weeks - hence its more rubbery texture, it still had plenty of flavour to it, but hardly any aroma at all. As Gouda matures it totally gets more excellent dude!!!
A most enjoyable Thursday night delight!
