Old Amsterdam (1 pound) by Gourmet-Food
Old Amsterdam is a Dutch gourmet cheese that is ripened to perfection and regularly checked for flavor. It is a gourmet cheese of exceptionally high and consistent quality, with a buttery mature aged Gouda flavor that cuts with ease. Just like the famous wines of distinction, Old Amsterdam is now recognized with 'Premier Grand Cru Classe' and has won numerous European Gold Medals for gourmet cheese. It is a particular favorite in our household and we enjoy its fine rich taste with both wine in the afternoon and in many meals. It can be served as an hors d'oeuvre, in meals or as part of a delightful after dinner cheese plate and goes well with both red and white wines. It slices, grates, and cooks very well. You simply can't go wrong choosing this fine Netherlands gourmet cheese- Old Amsterdam. We believe you will love it as much as we do. We cut and wrap this gourmet cheese in wedges of 8 ounces and 1 pound.

An outstanding aged GoudaNov 14, 2011
By Mark Beemsterboer
It isn't mentioned above, but Old Amsterdam is aged at least 18 months before shipping. Something magical happens to Gouda when it's aged. It transforms from a tasty if boring semi-soft cheese into a hard and complex cheese that approaches young Parmigiano-Reggiano in warmth and texture. Nice caramel and nutty notes. The cheese also has a pleasant crunch, the crystallization of acids that are a sign of good aging.
Old Amsterdam can be grated and used like a dry Italian cheese, but it also cuts neatly. It's soft enough to serve as slices or cubes. Delicious, magical stuff.
