From today, De Kaaskamer – since 1997 one of the best cheese shops in Holland – will run a blog next to our webshop. A perfect way to stay updated on the best Dutch and European cheeses, easy & tasty recipes and wine/beer-food pairings. We stock around 400(!) different cheeses, delicious delicacies, home-made products and a great selection of wines & beers. That should be enough of the good stuff to share with you.
This month we proudly present a new local favourite: Kijsrond, a camembert type cowmilks cheese from Cheesefarm Dikhoeve in Ransdorp (a tiny pretty village north of Amsterdam). We think it complements their evergreen Skaepsrond very well, as they are both rich and creamy. Feel free to visit De Kaaskamer and taste!
Recently we visited Naples, Italy, the place where pizza really took off. That was in the early 1600’s, and they have not changed their recipe since… they stick with Mozzarella di Bufala Campana. We will look up the roots of this world famous dish and share some insights on the simple basics of pizza ingredients.
Around Christmas we will highlight a nice food & wine pairing. Our regulars will love it… how about you? Don’t you just think it is a great time of year, December? Spoiler alert: yours truly will be drinking port wine on Christmas Eve.
We hope you will enjoy our blog, and that it will inspire you as a bon vivant à Amsterdam. Of course there’s always our shop in the Negen Straatjes area, where you can taste, smell, ask questions, have a chat about cheese and all the other goods. Welcome!
See you around,
