In the news today:

As of today, by European regulations, the use of the name Gouda Holland for cheese is protected. If the packaging says Gouda Holland the cheese has to be produced in the Netherlands. Much "Gouda" that is on the market was produced in Germany or Poland. They can still say "Gouda", but not "Gouda Holland". The German and Polish (and other) manufacturers are protesting because they feel that it is product description and not a brand name. They consider legal actions.

If they win, I'll start the first dutch Emmentaler and Gruyere factory :)

The great irony of this is that the rubber stuff covered in red wax I can get at most any food store could be labeled Gouda Holland. :D

Exactly. And because we don't want the fake stuff being referred to by our name, we forbid it. :)

So, John, in some time it'll only say "Gouda". But not "Gouda Holland". :)

"As of today Gouda Holland is a protected name"........does that make you feel safer ?

There is still plenty of processed cheese out there trying to find a way in. Maintain vigilence.

What I was trying to say is that the latex/red wax I can buy here is actually made in the Netherlands. No worries. With your training I can now tell good from bad regardless of labels. 8)

I can't recall ever seeing any Gouda here...real or fake...that wasn't labeled "made in Holland."

We can get a pretty tasty Parmesan cheese from Argentina, though. :lol:

I think it's about time I check that the "Roquefort" that I buy is actually from Roquefort. :shock:

BTW, Gouda cheese hasn't been produced in the town Gouda for years. It's produced in Stolwijk and Haastrecht. There's only one very particular kind of Gouda (Gouda "Farmers cheese", translated) that is actually produced in Gouda :) I never tasted it, but I'm sure I will.

I'm pretty sure that "Made in Holland" means it's actually made in Holland (it's not as obvious as it may seem). It's the expression "Gouda Holland" (without the "made in") that will be protected. I agree it appears irrelevant, but it was quite an issue in the news here.

Have you ever tried Leerdam? Can you get it over there? If you can, I can recommend it. It's a very fine sandwich or toast cheese.

Oh and Parmesan rules. On macaroni, yummie!

Never tried Leerdam, but I will look for it.

Remember TonyRV2 from the old days? He coarsely grated parmesan and threw it into a fryng pan, essentially making parmesan pancakes. Never tried it, but it sounds delightful.

I put hot sauce on my macaroni. 8)

Yes I remember Tony. Sounds delicious (not Tony, the Parmesan).

I'll be looking forward to reading your experience with Leerdam.
