To further celebrate Christmas, I went to a mixture between a deli and winery and sampled a piece of classic gouda cheese. It was creamy and tasted similar to cheddar cheese, but with a stronger aftertaste. Overall, that was some good gouda! In medieval times, cheese was a common dish because it was a way to preserve milk and help with digestion. They believed that it helped calm down the “cauldron” of the stomach. I shall keep this in mind as I continue to write the delicacies in my fantasy world.
