Our Best Pairings

The Art of Pairing

There is more to pairing than meets the tongue. Pairing cheese is a true art. You not only want to make pairings that taste good together, but you also want a variety of textures, smells, and different foods categories to make a wholesome pairing experience. In general, all of our Marieke Gouda flavors pair well with almonds because it offers a sweetness, saltiness, and different texture. There are many other ways to pair plain and flavored gouda. Here are a few of our favorites:
