iGourmet

We admit - we had to try it to believe it. Our Gouda supplier told us that their Light Gouda tasted just as good as a typical full...-fat variety, and it is true! This Gouda, with 30% less fat than the traditional recipe, does not taste waxy, cardboard-like, or have any other deficiency we've associated with light cheeses in the past. In fact, it is rich, creamy and delightful. If you love cheese but are trying to cut back on fat, our Gouda Light should be your first choice. Made from pasteurized cow's milk. Whole form of cheese is 24 lbs. We cut and wrap this item by the 1/2 pound. Please contact us if you would like to purchase the whole form. read more

This cheese is every bit as good as it sounds! Basiron is a creamy-tasting, gouda-style Dutch cheese jazzed up with pesto. Perfect...ly balanced and extremely addictive, this glitzy cheese "shows off" for Christmas, St. Patrick's Day, or almost any occasion. Its ingredients include pasteurized cow's milk, vegetarian rennet, and pesto (basil and garlic). It has 50% fat in dry matter and is aged approximately 5-6 weeks for a firm, yet youthful texture. The Veldhuyzen family in Holland, whose cheese making tradition dates back to the 1800s, makes a variety of innovative cheeses. Although Basiron is a show stopper on the cheese board, its festive color is always ready to complement a tray of vegetables or equally colorful cheeses such as red-waxed gouda or edam. For a bright and flavorful dish with a twist of flavors, shred Basiron over gnocchi or pasta smothered in your favorite pasta sauce. Made from pasteurized cow's milk. Suitable for vegetarians.

We all love this goat cheese! It is amazing what just a little honey can do to a goat's milk cheese. This gouda has a light nutty ...flavor with a hint of sweetness, like honey roasted cashews. Aged for six months, Honey BeeŽ is full of flavor, but neither too strong nor too salty. Its smooth texture makes it easy to slice or cube. The Honey BeeŽ goat cheese is a wonderful snacking cheese. It is easy to see why kids love it as well. If you like our other flavored goat cheeses like Capra Honey Goat or Dorothea, you're sure to agree that this is beelicious! Made from pasteurized goat's milk. Photo depicts whole 10 lb. form of cheese. We cut and wrap this item by the 1/2 pound. Please contact us if you would like to purchase the whole form. read more

Over twenty years ago, we had a request from the man who originated "The Cellar" at Macy's. "I want the Dutch Goat cheese I tasted... when I was in Holland," he said. We took a trip to Amsterdam and inquired on his behalf to all of our suppliers and any cheese producers we could find. We had no success. There was not an ounce of Dutch goat cheese anywhere! Two decades since that adventure, Dutch goat cheese is still a rarity, except, that is, for Goat Gouda. A few entrepreneurial Dutchmen discovered that Gouda, the cheese people most commonly associate with Holland, could be made from goat's milk as well. Goat Gouda has proven wildly popular in Europe and is starting to turn heads here in the States, too. This silken, bright white cheese is now manufactured by several Dutch cheese producers, but in our opinion, our Chevre Blanc brand is the best Goat Gouda around. If you like goat cheese, we strongly suggest you try this tangy, satiny, mouth-watering gem. Made from pasteurized goat's milk. Photo depicts whole 10 lb. form of cheese.

This smooth and buttery Gouda is the perfect base for the aromatic addition of ground Italian Black truffles. Imported from Hollan...d, this striking, black-waxed Gouda reveals a golden interior peppered with real black truffles, not truffle aromi or truffle salt. The cheese itself is quite mild, allowing the lusty flavor of truffles to really shine. Aged for 2-3 months, this Gouda shreds and melts easily, making it an easy way to add the indulgent flavor of truffles to your favorite recipes. Truffled omelettes or truffled mac n' cheese, anyone? Pair this cheese with a medium-bodied wine with some tannins, such a Cabernet Franc or Sangiovese, as the wine should stand up to the truffles, but not overwhelm their flavor. Made from pasteurized cow's milk. Photo depicts whole 10 lb. form of cheese. We cut and wrap this item by the half-pound. Please contact us if you would like to purchase the whole form. read more

Gouda, Holland's best-selling cheese, is made from whole milk, giving the cheese a butterfat content of 48%. To make a cheese that... is even creamier, Gouda producers add extra cream to the milk, producing a cheese called Roomkaas with a butterfat content of 60%. Roomkaas, meaning "cream cheese," is similar to a Koopsen Kaas Double Cream. Smooth, buttery, and delightful, this cheese pairs well with fresh grapes, pears, and dried Turkish apricots. It's sliceable, it melts beautifully, ideal for making creamy cheese sauces. It also makes delicious omelets, tortillas and potatoes. Melt some on a hot piece of apple pie for a special dessert!

On a trip to Holland, we discovered a limited production Dutch chevre created by the Van Dijk family. Dorothea, named after the Va...n Dijk's mother, was created at the request of the famous chef Cas Spijkars. Cas wanted to win the annual Dutch award for "Most Unusual Food" and thought that a flavored goat cheese might do the trick. They began experimenting with a secret ingredient - potato skins - chosen because the potato is an important food in Dutch culinary tradition. But Cas thought that initial efforts with the cheese/potato combination fell a little flat, so they kept working. Finally, after tweaking the recipe by adding some basil oil, coriander oil, and chopped onion, Cas and the Van Dijks had completed their masterpiece - and subsequently won the award! Each wheel of Dorothea (only 4,000 are made per year) is pampered with the optimum aging conditions. Humidity and temperature are meticulously adjusted every few days to assure proper maturation. This wonderfully delicious cheese is made from pasteurized milk, but retains all of the taste for which goat's milk is famous. It is aged over 60 days to develop a full, nutty flavor and a body that is firm, but not hard enough to grate. Dorothea has an aroma reminiscent of the fresh outdoors and an unforgettable flavor. Made from pasteurized goat's milk, aged 60 days. Photo depicts whole 10 lb. form of cheese. We cut and wrap this item by the 1/2 pound.

This Goat Gouda with Honey is a younger cheese than HoneyBee, another Goat Gouda with Honey, giving it a softer, smoother texture,... with a slightly fuller taste of the goat's milk. A swirl of honey added to the curds gives this cheese a slightly sweet and floral note. We love the supple texture of this goat's milk cheese, especially in the kitchen for melting on noodles or in a grilled cheese toastie. Imported from Holland, this Gouda ends with a slightly salty, savory finish, making it perfect for pairing with crisp, tart apples or red grapes. For wines, look to a nice bottle of Malbec, or perhaps a minerally white wine to offset the lemon and hay notes of the goat's milk. Made from pasteurized goat's milk.

Lovers of super-aged Gouda, take note: we consider this 3-year-aged Saenkanter Gouda even better than a 5-year-aged Boerenkaas bec...ause its larger wheel -- Saenkanter weighs in at a hefty 27 pounds -- allows for more even ripening and optimal flavor development. Made by a small dairy in northern Holland, this cheese is a prime example of what happens when cows' milk Gouda is carefully aged for a long time. The paste firms up considerably but melts on the palate, and contains a multitude of tyrosine "flavor crystals" scattered throughout. It has distinct caramel-butterscotch notes and a whiskey-like aroma with the right amount of salinity. A rare find! Made from pasteurized cow's milk. Photo depicts whole 27 lb. form of cheese.

The cheese market in Holland is changing rapidly. For years, Holland was known for Gouda and Edam, two simple cheeses that appeal ...to the masses. But as tastes have moved upscale, the popularity of Gouda and Edam has waned. With almost every cheese plant in Holland geared up for the production of these two cheeses, a gap between supply and demand threatened to put the smaller cheesemakers out of business. While many got bought out by larger competitors, several shifted their strategy to new and inventive specialty cheeses. Since the mid 1990's, many new cheeses have been developed in Holland. Rouveen, the maker of this cheese, is one of the pioneers of the specialty movement. Rouveen's Wild Garlic Gouda transforms ordinary Gouda into something fantastic and exciting. A cheese you will crave endlessly, Wild Garlic Gouda is everything you expect it to be and more. Flashy and flavorful, the garlic hits you right away but doesn't overpower. The Gouda base has just the right amount of saltiness, with a texture that is not gummy like many other Goudas on the market. A truly surprising cheese, we recommend serving Wild Garlic Gouda at your next party or get together. Made from pasteurized cow's milk. Whole form of cheese is 10 lbs.
