Gouda

Gouda cheese is a traditional semi-hard cheese that has been made in Holland for more than 400 years. Our Gouda artisan cheese is made from full cream milk using the traditional recipe. We specialize in the following Gouda flavours:

  • Plain
  • Chilli
  • Cumin
  • Fenugreek
  • Black Pepper
  • Walnut
  • Mustard
  • Frisian Clove (Cumin & Cloves)
  • Garlic Nettle
  • Basil Garlic

Gouda cheese is labeled and sold according to the age of the cheese from young until vintage. Young Gouda will be softer and more mild in taste. As Gouda ages it will get slightly harder and stronger in flavour.

  • Young: 3-8 weeks
  • Mild: 3-4 months
  • Medium: 5-6 months
  • Mature: 7-9 months
  • Old: 10-12 months
  • Vintage: > 12 months

Cheddar

Cheddar cheese, one of the most popular cheeses in the world, is a hard cheese with a sharper taste as it matures. Our natural white cheddar makes a great addition to many dishes or by itself with crackers or fruit.

Our artisan cheddar cheese is sold according to the same age scale as Gouda.

Kalari

Kalari is the Gujjar name for their local cheese. This cheese is also called “milk chapatti” or “maish krej” in Kashmiri. Some have even described kalari as the “mozzarella of Kashmir.”

A local custom for cooking kalari is to fry it in oil, and then flavor it with salt and/or chilli powder. You can also enjoy dipping it in a cilantro or garlic/chilli chutney sauce. Please see our video below showing you one way that cooking Kalari can be done.

We take special care with our Kalari to preserve the unique taste and culture of the people of the Himalayas. Our Kalari is kept frozen in packets of 500 grams to maintain freshness.
