Edam Cheese is one of the most famous varieties in the world, and for good reason. Though usually cheese is only named after a town because of the market, Edam cheese is and always has been produced in Edam itself. This tradition has continued for over 400 years, and continues today.
Edam Cheese is more salty and less fatty than Gouda cheese, making it a prime candidate for maturing. After about a year, a cheese is classified as old cheese. Old Edam cheese is considered some of the highest quality old cheese available, on par with Parmigiano. The cheese has a spicy kick, and salty hue that will make any sandwich, cheeseplate, or snack absolutely astonishing!
