Amsterdammer (British Columbia)

Amsterdammer is a semi-soft cheese. It can be a replacement for a cheese like cheddar. An extremely rich and creamy cheese, made from pasteurized milk. Its sharp character, crumbly or semi-soft texture goes extremely well with a good red wine. A combination of the priciest red wine and Amsterdammer is a delight for food lovers! Can also be served with fresh fruits or sandwich toppings. Amsterdammer won 1st prize in 2004 British Empire Cheese Show.
