Postcard: Amsterdam's Handmade Gouda

In Amsterdam, wax-encased rounds of handmade gouda are displayed like jewels at Henri Willig Cheese and More on the pedestrian shopping street, Leidsestraat. Made from Dutch cow's milk, the cheese is mild and creamy. (For a side trip from Amsterdam, you can visit one of Henri Willig's three farms, where traditionally garbed cheesemakers demonstrate their way with curds and whey.) _ — Betsy Andrews_
