Expression “Gouda Cheese”
Gouda cheese or Goeda Cheese as the Americans call it is cheese that is produced in the area around Gouda. The cheese is named after the market place Gouda where the trade took place. No cheese is made in Gouda itself. Strange that there is no Alkmaar cheese, while that is the best known cheese market. People of Gouda are called cheese heads because of the custom to use the wooden cheese molds as a helmet in times of need.
