Gouda with Cumin is a tradtional Gouda with a twist. An unusual creamy, washed curd, Gouda cheese with the addition of pungent aromatic cumin seeds giving a warm spicy flavour that blends beautifully with the texture of the cheese.
Gouda, is a semisoft cow’s milk cheese from the Netherlands, named after the town where it was originally traded. Gouda is traditionally made in flat wheels, each with a thin natural rind. It has a smooth and ivory coloured interior. Gouda is one of the oldest European cheeses and has been a popular cheese since the 12th century. It was so popular that it was shipped to France and further afield and has been produced in several different countries.
The process of making Gouda, including the washing of the curd, creates an elastic curd and a mellow flavour. Possibly a cheese to enjoy after a spicy Indian or Thai meal to keep the theme going, or enjoy with a Dutch beer.
