That Dutchman's Cheese


One of the nice things about settling into early middle-age is that you begin to appreciate things you ignored for so long or simply didn't have time for. Like cheese.

Anyone who frequents the Halifax Seaport Farmer's Market would be well-acquainted with the neatly stacked rounds of Gouda brought in from That Dutchman's Farm, "producers of fine farmstead cheeses". I was introduced to their gouda a few years ago when a friend from Halifax brought some over to Montreal, and I drool for it since. If you manage to get your hands on one of these wheels, prepare to hallucinate.
