Fall is just coming up around the bend, and the weather is already starting to feel a little chillier here in Sacramento, California, which can only mean one thing—Gouda. This weather is the perfect time to cozy up with a good slice of Gouda, and Old Amsterdam® Cheese has the answer for all your shoppers’ autumn taste buds with its versatile Gouda products.
According to the company’s release, Old Amsterdam’s Classic Aged Gouda and Old Amsterdam Goat Gouda are versatile and align with trending taste preferences as Gouda cheese continues to grow in the U.S. and worldwide. Both Gouda and Goat cheeses have risen in popularity among specialty cheeses over the past year. Old Amsterdam lends its name to some of the best Gouda and Goat Gouda cheeses on the market. Premium and specialty cheeses continue to perform well with more people eating and entertaining at home, as many Americans have expanded beyond traditional favorites to full-flavored specialty products.
Known as The Classic, Old Amsterdam Aged Gouda is aged for a minimum of 8 months, creating a perfect balance between sweet and savory. It has rich, butterscotch undertones and a dense, smooth texture sparked with fine ripening crystals. This popular and well-loved favorite from Holland has won numerous awards and is loved internationally. Ideal for cheese platters; recipes; and other pairings such as almonds, jam, fruit chutney, fruits, raisin nut bread, and crackers, The Classic also pairs well with a favorite wine, beer, or cocktail.
For shoppers looking for some more goat in their diets, Old Amsterdam Goat Gouda is also aged for a minimum of 8 months and has a very surprising and pleasant flavor profile. It is refreshingly sweet with caramel undertones and a smooth, creamy texture with fine ripening crystals. As noted in the release, the Goat Gouda was voted the #1 Hard Goat’s Milk cheese in the world. The sweetness and texture make this great to top of salads, with sandwiches, and in many popular recipes. Additionally, it pairs well on a platter with hazelnuts, figs, fruits, and a favorite IPA.
With deep, rich, and nutty flavors, Old Amsterdam is perfect for cooking the best autumn meals. Old Amsterdam also goes splendidly alongside the favorite flavors of fall—think apple, pumpkin, and spices galore—thus making its Gouda and Goat varieties the ideal addition to any Fall Harvest Cheese Board or Grazing Platter.
