"Great Cheese" Cheese Tip by kenbac

Cheese, Amsterdam: 3 reviews and 3 photos

  Dutch Cheese
by kenbac

If you want to bring home cheese and the most popular cheese in Holland is Gouda (pronounce it with a h not a g) and comes in various conditions. It's probably enough to go for Jong (young) and Oude (old). If you're there in June get some Graskaas. Its very mild young Gouda and is beautiful. Best to buy your cheese in any Albert Heijn Supermarket. There?s a big one behind the Royal Palace open late and also on Sundays. Buy vacuum packed cheese with a long date. If you see cheeses you think you might like asking to try them is never a problem.
Also Albert Heijn will vacume any chese you like, which will give it a much better life than if just wrapped.
