Cheese is part of life throughout Holland. The average Dutch person consumes over 40 lbs. of cheese per year. The Beemster farmers eat cheese on bread for breakfast, on a sandwich for lunch, and often use cheese as an ingredient in dinner dishes. The Beemster farmers, who work hard to provide the highest quality milk in the Netherlands, prefer their cheese aged 6 months.
The favorite of the Beemster: Medium, Semi-soft & Tangy.
Pairs with red wines and dark beers; a good choice for croque monsieur.
