Gouda  :
Named after a small Dutch port, Gouda is a cow’s milk cheese, pressed uncooked. Taking the shape of a small wheel (3 to 5 kg) with a smooth yellow rind, this cheese is matured between three and eighteen months: after three months of maturing (young), it has a compact paste without holes, initially soft and nutty, which hardens at six months (semi-steamed) and becomes pungent after one year (steamed).
