Gouda Loaf

Gouda Loaf

is a Dutch yellow cheese made from cow's milk. It is named after the city of Gouda in the Netherlands not because it is produced in or near the city, but because it has historically been traded there. One of the most popular cheeses worldwide, the name is used today as a general term for a variety of similar cheese produced in the traditional Dutch manner, as well as the Dutch original.

 

The first mention of Gouda cheese dates from 1184, making it one of the oldest recorded cheeses in the world still made today.
