Cheese… from Gouda

10 05 2009

I also like cheese postcards (I enjoy eating cheese as well ;)) so I’m going to show some cheese too and I start with the world’s most famous (and for me most nearby) Dutch cheese, Gouda! This wheel-shaped cheese is made of cow’s milk and has it’s origin in the area of the city of Gouda in the West of The Netherlands. The Netherlands started to export cheese in the Middle Ages. Since then, and the era’s afterwards, The Netherlands became world widely known as the cheese country.
