Old Amsterdam can be enjoyed as an after-dinner savoury treat with a bold red wine and water biscuits, with sweet condiments such as honey-mustard or chutney.

Old Amsterdam can also be enjoyed with selections of seasonal nuts such as pistachios or almonds to cleanse the palate. It comes coated in a sleek, black wax and is an indulgent alternative to Gouda.

    Take your time and don’t forget to eat the light cheeses first; bries and chevres for example. You can then make your way through the spectrum of flavours ending with the hardest cheeses; the Old Amsterdam and Gorgonzolas.

The added extras:

  • Use crackers or slices of good quality raisin nut bread. The sweetness of the bread is a perfect balance with the richness of Old Amsterdam.
  • Arrange grapes or slices of pears and apples around the cheese. Mix almonds and pistachios in a small bowl to cleanse the palate.
