This cheese is traditionally made with pasteurized cow's milk, some producers of this cheese like to use a mixture of either goat's or sheep's milk along with the cow's milk. This cheese is somewhat sweet, and the flavor and texture of the cheese depends on the age of the cheese. It pairs well with light red or fruity white wines and can grace any sandwich in either its cold or melted form (when we say this, we just can't help ourselves from mentioning Gouda and apple grilled sandwich).
What if you're in the mood for some good old Gouda but can't make a quick run to the supermarket?! Fret not! Here are a few alternatives that you could use.
