Gouda, or "How-da" as the locals say, is a Dutch cheese named after the city of Gouda in the Netherlands. It is one of the most popular cheeses in the world, accounting for 50 to 60 percent of the world's cheese consumption. It is a semi-hard cheese known for its rich, unique flavor and smooth texture. Since the name is not protected, it has become a generic classification for all cheeses produced and sold under the name Gouda.
