is a yellowish Dutch cheese named after the city of Gouda. The
cheese is made from cow's milk that is cultured and heated until
the curd is separate from the whey. About ten percent of the
mixture is curds which are pressed into circular moulds for
several hours. These molds are the essential reason behind its
traditional yet characteristic shape. The cheese is then soaked
in a brine solution which gives the cheese its rind and
distinctive taste. The cheese is then dried for a couple of days
before being coated to prevent it from drying out, then it is
aged for a number of weeks before it is ready to be eaten. The
term "Gouda" is now a generic name, and not restricted
to cheese of Dutch origin. The term "Noord-Hollandse Gouda"
is registered in the EU as a Protected Designation of Origin.
