Parmigiano Reggiano is a highly concentrated cheese: it contains only 30% water and 70% nutrients. Parmigiano Reggiano is therefore rich in proteins, vitamins and minerals and creates a true taste explosion in the mouth. When making the cheese, it is placed in saturated brine for twenty days, resulting in a delicious savoury taste. Because of the characteristic white dots that are visible in the Parmesan cheese, also called crystals, many people think that this cheese is very salty.
When you eat pasta every now and then, you are most likely familiar with pesto. Pesto comes in two colours, red and green. The green pesto is usually based on the ingredient basil and in the red pest you find either tomato or paprika. Pesto is delicious in its own right, but it often used to add spice and flavour to other products.
Beemster cheese is always of high quality. This delicious cheese is made from the creamy dairy that originates from the North Holland polder. This meadow milk is also full of proteins and minerals. The name Beemster represents a whole family of cheeses. Each cheese has a distinct taste, but all of them have that characteristic 'pliable' mouthfeel.
When it comes to smoked food most people are familiar with a lot of different foods that can be smoked. Of course there is smoked sausage, smoked salmon, different kinds of smoked meat and the list can go on. What most people do not directly associate with smoked foods, is cheese. And yet, smoked Gouda is one of the most delicious delicatessen you can find.
Enjoying a cheese fondue together is one of the nicest ways to spend an evening meal with family and friends. There is a very nostalgic feeling to it, and sitting together around the table eating delicious melted cheese from one fondue pot, with your own uniquely colored fork is fun.

If you are looking for a fondue pot, set or other tools, you can find it all on our website.
