Cheese - a Dutch delicacy
Our country, which is rich in fertile farmland, is perfect for dairy cows. This is why our cheeses are considered a delicacy the world over.
Cheeses differ according to how long they have been aged. A young cheese, aged for four months, has a mild and creamy taste. A very old cheese, aged over a year, has a dry texture and a very intense taste. It’s custom to taste a cheese before you buy it – so don’t be shy.
Here are the most sought-after Dutch cheeses.
