Cows Animal Pasteurised
Leerdammer is a semi-hard Dutch cheese made from pasteurised cow’s milk. First developed by Cees Boterkooper in 1914 on a small farm in Schoonrewoerd, today, the cheese is produced exclusively by le Groupe Bel. Schoonrewoerd is located in the municipality of Leerdam from where the cheese takes its name.Leerdammer has a slightly elastic, creamy white pate with a somewhat sweet, nutty flavour that becomes definite with age. This open textured cheese with numerous holes is a delicious cross between Emmental and Dutch Gouda.
