Well I see no dutch has posted here yet. Why does a cheese country like ours haven't got any post in this section! Waiting for an explanation!

Hi I'm Dutch.
I'm living in Canada, but I'm as Dutch as it can be.

Hoi Leonardo

Ik ben al een tijd weg uit NL, maar in herinnering is de meeste Nederlandse kaas een variatie op Gouda/Edam: Op het forum veel bediscussieerd... door niet-NLers!
Door de keus en prijs in van kaas in de winkel in NL neem ik niet aan dat veel Nederlanders hun eigen kaas maken.

Veel leuker om iets 'speciaals' te maken en dan maakt nationaliteit weinig uit

Groetjes
Amnon

Sorry I thought this was posted to the Dutch part of the forum.
Loosely translated:

Hi Leonardo

I left the Netherlands a while ago but remember most cheeses are variations of Gouda/ Edam. These cheeses are discussed a lot... but not by Dutch people. As the choice in the Netherlands is big and price is right, I doubt many Dutch would make Gouda themselves. (maybe expats?)

Much more interesting to make something 'special', and then nationality is not an issue.

I'm not too long busy on this forum and discovered only now this part on the forum. So here is finally a response from a Dutchman living IN Holland. And not only just in Holland, but about in the middle between Leiden (from the famous Leiden cumin cheese) and Gouda (no further explanation needed I suppose...). It's a town about 26000 inhabitans and I'm lucky enough to have a goat farm nearby where I can buy fresh  raw goat milk and a farm at about 10 kilometers (we don't use miles here  ^-^) where they make artisan Gouda cheese and where I buy my fresh raw cow's milk (even early in the morning during milking time, so it's still at about 34C when I come home...). I make Gouda's in different varieties, Brie, Cabra al Vino, feta, Leiden, Cambozola, this weekend Reblochon and there's a lot more on the list that I want to try.
But when I look at this forum and the amount of Dutch people here (euhh, is it more than one?) and the fact that webshops here only offer the basic articles for cheese making, I'm surprised we still have such a reputation in cheese making as a country. Indeed, the fact that the (factory produced) cheese here is relatively cheap, and artisan cheese in this part of the country is easy to find (and also not expensive) must be a big reason not many people make their own cheese just for hobby...

Still it's strange to see how much time there is between the "Dutch" posts. Apparently not so much people from The Netherlands on the forum. There is one Dutch cheese-forum at http://gratisforums.com/kaasgilde/viewforum.php?f=1 which I'm trying to get "alive" again.
@Berger: Pitty I didn't know about your existance earlier, I just have been to Texel and I think it would have been nice to drop by...
