Do you have questions when shopping for cheese? Ask the cheesemonger! A cheesemonger specializes in the buying and selling of high-quality cheese, usually available in the specialty section of a grocery store or cheese shop. Knowledgeable and passionate, a cheesemonger is a go-to resource for cheese varieties and pairings, proper cheese storage and handling, its cooking applications and cheese brand information.

Young gouda cheese has a sweet curd that’s buttery and creamy with a nutty finish. Aged gouda flavors are more complex with caramel notes and butterscotch sweetness; and it has a slight crystalline texture.
