Gouda is made from whole milk, giving the cheese a butterfat content of 48%. To make Roomkaas, which is even creamier, cheese-makers add extra cream to the milk, producing a cheese with a butterfat content of 60%. Roomkaas, meaning “cream cheese,” is smooth, and buttery. It pairs well with fresh grapes, pears, and dried Turkish apricots. It’s sliceable, it melts beautifully, ideal for making creamy cheese sauces. It also makes delicious omelets, tortillas and potatoes.
