Prima Donna Gouda 18 month aged cow cheese Holland 4oz
Prima Donna is easy to spot, a large Gouda-style cheese with a ruby red label, officially called Prima Donna Maturo. This Dutch gourmet cheese is aged until it reaches the flavor profile that was set for the maturo; it is not aged for a pre-set amount of time, like the majority of cheese. This cheese is respected and allowed to take its own sweet time, like waiting on a beautiful woman to arrive, always worth the wait.
This Dutch beauty is spicy and with a little bit of an Italian temperament. Prima Donna combines the traditional way of Dutch cheesemaking with the intricate flavors of Parmesan a cheese that is clearly different from the traditional Dutch Gouda-style cheeses.
Prima Donna Maturo has small holes, often filled with protein-salt crystals, one of the characteristics of the cheese and why it is said to have Parmesan characteristics.
In 2014 and 2015 this Prima Donna received a Gold Award for 'Best European Cheese' at the Global Cheese Awards in the UK.
Excellent on a sandwich, in soups or sauces or as a snack. Prima Donna brings out its innate sensation with red wines such as a Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Syrah or Zinfandel. A great alternative among the Dutch matured cheeses.
