Gouda is a semi hard cheese with a creamy texture and mild nutty flavor.  Easy to cut and grate, also melts beautifully. This cheese will make any recipe you usually put your average cheese in, taste like a gourmet dish…without any extra work! It is also delightful as a snack, the flavor stands alone and is great before or after meals. Enjoy with a beer or glass of wine at any gathering.

Forty years ago, Jack Appel started out making Gouda for friends and family.  You can see his first cheesemaking equipment in our Cheese Shop, along with other dairy equipment from bygone days.
