A PDO cheese made in the spanish La Mancha region. Prepared from pasteurised manchega sheeps (ewe’s) milk, rennet cultures and salt.
The natural five week ripening process gives Frico Maasdam its delicious sweet and nutty taste. Due to its holes and taste this cheese is often referred to as Dutch Emmental. It can be added to any hot and cold dish, eaten as a snack or in a sandwich. It is also the perfect cheese for a cheese fondue
Frico Gouda cheese has a deliciously creamy, taste with a smooth texture. When the cheese matures, it acquires a stronger flavour. It is a very versatile Dutch cheese and can be used in a wide selection of dishes.
This cheese has been specially treated by smoke-curing. It typically has a yellowish-brown outer “skin,” which is a result of this curing process.
