L'Amuse Signature Gouda
Pasteurized Cow - North Holland, Netherlands. Famously difficult to resist because of its candy-like qualities, L’Amuse Signature Gouda is the undisputed champion of any cheese board. It’ll grab your attention with its deep, amber color, hook you with its fudgy texture, and enthrall you with its rich, sweet, hazelnut flavors.
The genius behind this cheese is Betty Koster, who founded her Amsterdam cheese shop Fromagerie L’Amuse in 1989. Betty works with cheesemakers and affineurs throughout the Netherlands, selecting and selling the wheels that fit her target profile. Typically, Betty’s goudas are aged at higher-than-normal temperatures to bring about full, complex flavors and rich, moist textures. L’Amuse is known for its notes of warm butterscotch and caramel, its crispy protein crystals, and its long finish.
