"The Pril is awesome!"
So says Lisa Roberts, our resident cheese guru who knows a thing or two about cheese.
While Gouda is made everywhere in the Netherlands, there are major differences between goudas from different regions.
This particular gouda is selected for us by Betty Koster of L'amuse, Amsterdam's top cheese shop. It's aged for half a year or so, so it's on the younger side, but it tastes like a much more mature cheese. The flavor fills your mouth with notes of butterscotch and caramel, finishing with a milky sweetness that makes it a favorite eating cheese, especially alongside a good cracker. Try it in grilled cheese sandwiches, too. It's great in any format.
"I ordered the L'Amuse Pril Gouda two weeks ago and this cheese is seriously the BEST cheese I have ever had. The webite description said it has a butterscotch-like flavor... I don't know about that because I hate butterscotch, and I freaking love this cheese. I can't even decide which way to eat it is my favorite, it made a bomb ass grilled cheese, and I didn't think it could get any better but today when I had it at work on a turkey and avocado sandwich I felt like I died and went to heaven."
