Meadowkaas: Get it While it’s Gouda!

June 15, 2012

Meadowkaas is a springtime gouda, that is only available during three months of the year, when the cows in Holland get to eat the first of the springtime grass. It is aged for four weeks and has a wax shell.

Meadowkaas is a gouda choice for a spring cheese spread.

I found Meadowkaas at Whole Foods Union Square ($7.99/lb) and was pleasantly surprised with the creamy, mild and nutty flavor of this semi-soft cheese. It’s definitely a snack-able cheese– I’ve been munching tasting and recording notes on it for about 15 minutes now (purely research) and the only thing I have to warn you about is the salty aftertaste.

And there you have it kids: Meadowkaas.

Meadowkaas, like other gouda, melts easily- I would definitely try it on a burger at your next BBQ or in a creamy pasta sauce with lots of mushrooms and maybe some asparagus. I’ve started drooling again; excuse me as I start brainstorming a Meadowkaas-centered dinner.

Word of advice: taking pics on your fire escape is a good idea until the cheese falls onto the sidewalk from four floors up. Woops.

    Did you rescue the cheese from the sidewalk? I think I would have dusted it off and eaten it!
