Caring For Your Cheese
Shipping Notes

In its natural form, Goudahas a semi-soft yellow paste, sprinkled with holes. In its young age, Gouda’s flavor is mild but becomes sweeter and more intense as it ages. When Gouda is smoked slowly in brick ovens that date back hundreds of years over hickory chips, it takes on an entirely new flavor.

Smoked Gouda has a thin rind that is a rich dark color, and a creamy off white center. The flavor tastes of natural smoke and leaves a musky aftertaste on your palate. This is an incredibly versatile cheese and a great choice for picnics or cheese boards. It makes a sensational macaroni and cheese and is great in a variety of other dishes.

If you are looking for a wine pairing, a red wine like Merlot or Napa is a great choice. For a heartier selection, smoked cheese and beers are a wonderful compliment to each other.

Upon receipt of your order the ice pack may no longer be frozen. This is expected and should not be the cause of alarm. The cheese should be cool to room temperature. Once rewrapped and stored properly the cheese will last up to 3 weeks.

For optimal storage allowing the cheese to breathe and retain moisture wrap the cheese in wax paper, plastic wrap or tin foil upon arrival.

A - Bloomy rind, tomes, hard or dry rind cheeses - wrap only the cut surface in plastic wrap, leaving the rind exposed so the cheese can breathe.

B - Blue cheeses should be wrapped securely in tin foil.

C - Washed rind cheeses should be wrapped in wax paper.

D - Small cheeses such as goat’s milk crottin should be wrapped in wax paper.

E - Soft cheeses store well in waxed paper or sealed containers.

Store your cheese in a cool, damp place such as a wine cellar, larder, wine cabinet, or in the vegetable drawer of your refrigerator (the warmest part of the refrigerator).

As a general rule, aged hard cheeses last longer than softer, less aged varieties.

For the fullest flavor it is recommended to bring cheese to room temperature before serving.

* See cheese label for proper storage recommendations
