A light beer is the perfect yet unexpected accompaniment to Gouda.
If cheese and crackers had a personality, they’d definitely be people pleasers! When arranging your cheese and cracker tray, make sure to pair neutral crackers with stronger cheeses so as to appreciate their distinct flavour, and herbed crackers with mild cheeses so as to complement their subtle taste.
Gouda melts well so it’s the perfect addition to a grilled sandwich and it can hold its own as a fancy fondue served with potatoes and rye bread, or dried fruit and chocolate for dessert! You can even add it to your favorite soup to liven up the flavor!
Place a cube of semisoft cheese, slice of ham or chicken, and a grape tomato on top of a slice of baguette and hold it together with a tooth pick. Voila! A simple yet tasty hors d’oeuvre is served!
