Semi-cured artisanal Gouda cheese by Craxi cheese.
Craxi semi-cured artisan Gouda farmer’s cheese.
Semi-cured Craxi Gouda artisanal cheese undergoes a natural maturation of 4 months. Raw milk semi-cured cheese is a treasure trove of flavors and textures. It is made from unpasteurized milk, which retains the complex natural flavors of the milk and the environment where it was produced. The semi-cured aspect means that it’s been aged for a few months but not as long as fully cured cheeses. This gives it a semi-firm texture and a rich, creamy interior, making it an ideal choice for a wide range of culinary creations.
This 4-month-aged farmstead Gouda cheese is made using the traditional method with raw cow’s milk (unpasteurized milk) on the cheese farm in the Netherlands.
The versatility of raw milk semi-cured cheese makes it a fantastic ingredient for various dishes and an ideal companion for beverages. Here are some pairings that pair beautifully with our 4 months matured Gouda cheese:
- Tapas: Semi-cured cheese is a staple in Spanish tapas. Pair it with olives, jamón (Spanish ham), and crusty bread for a delightful tapas spread.
- Paella: A glass of Spanish red wine complements the rich flavors of paella, and adding semi-cured cheese to the mix can enhance the experience.
- Spanish Omelette (Tortilla Española): Semi-cured cheese can be grated or folded into a Spanish omelette for a creamy, savory addition.
- Grilled Meats: Enjoy semi-cured cheese with grilled meats such as chorizo or morcilla (blood sausage).
- Charcuterie Boards: Raw milk semi-cured cheese is a charcuterie classic. Pair it with an assortment of cured meats, fresh fruits, and nuts. The contrasting textures and flavors create a harmonious balance.
- Pasta: Grate or melt raw milk semi-cured cheese over hot pasta dishes. The creamy, nutty flavors work wonderfully with the richness of a good pasta.
- Salad: Sprinkle crumbled raw milk semi-cured cheese on your favorite salads for an extra burst of flavor and creaminess.
- Crusty Bread: Spread this cheese on a slice of fresh, crusty bread for a simple yet divine snack.
- Grilled cheese sandwich: Both the taste and the ‘meltability’ of this cheese are perfect for the tastiest grilled sandwich.
- Pizza: This cheese melts nicely on the pizza and gives a delicious taste. Do you use parmesan when making your favorite pizza? Tip use some 12, 24 or 36 month aged Craxi Gouda.

- Albariño: The crisp, citrusy notes of Albariño create a refreshing contrast with the richness of semi-cured cheese.
- Verdejo: Verdejo wines have a vibrant acidity and often display tropical fruit and herbal notes that complement the cheese’s complexity.
- Fino Sherry: The dry and nutty character of Fino Sherry pairs exquisitely with semi-cured cheese. This is a classic Andalusian match.
- Cava: This sparkling wine from Spain has a refreshing and slightly toasty profile, making it a delightful companion for semi-cured cheese, especially when served with Spanish olives.
- Craft Beers: Don’t rule out beer! A nice, malty beer or an IPA can create a delightful contrast with the cheese’s richness.
Remember that the best combinations depend on your personal preferences, so don’t hesitate to experiment and discover your own favorite combinations. The key is to enjoy the delicious flavors and textures that authentic raw milk Gouda cheese has to offer.
