A farmhouse raw cow's milk gouda (known as "boerenkaas" in Holland, the home of gouda) from Thorp, Wisconsin. Made by Marieke Penterman, this rivals the Netherlands' best cheeses in depth of flavor, complexity and balance.
Our cheesemonger Carlos has selected batches that were aged on pine planks for a full year. They have an irresistibly delicious balance of rich, dense, sweet and savory creaminess with those little crunchy flavor crystals we love so much.
Marieke gouda has been a runaway favorite on Carlos's cheese counter. I'm pretty sure it'll be a hit in your home too.
The wheels we're currently opening, made just last summer, are some of the best yet! Caramelly sweet with a lingering milky finish, this cheese is dense and rich.
