Surprising combinations of cheese and herbs
The fresh cow’s milk used as the basis for our herb cheeses is soft and mild in flavour. As a result, our Noordlander herb cheeses are full and creamy in flavour and the added herbs provide complementary, perfectly discernible flavour notes. There is a variant for everybody, ranging from slightly spicy (nettle) to nutty (fenugreek) to hot and spicy (sambal and jalapeño pepper).
