Black Truffle Gouda cheese
Can you tell this cheese isn’t from The Netherlands? Probably not, because the Penterman family has a dairy background in the Netherlands and in fact only came to Wisconsin because the land is still available. Their recent Gouda-making education in Holland shows they studied hard. Since being introduced in 2006, their Goudas have been winning U.S. competitions. They are in the midst of transitioning from pasteurized to raw milk with a herd of 720 Holstein cows (all rBGH-free) providing the freshest milk, directly from their milkings to the vat for cheesemaking.
Pairing suggestions: Sparkling wine, Potter’s Winter Wheat Crackers, tart apples.
