Cheese has probably been made in Holland back as far as 200 B.C.E.—even Julius Caesar mentions Dutch cheese in his logs. Cheese production took a major role in Dutch life by the middle ages when they began exporting. Cheese markets grew and towns that were granted weighing rights got special status in the country. The town of Gouda has the Waag weigh house, which is one of the most beautiful in Holland. There are elaborate weigh houses, where goods were scaled, priced, and traded in every major Dutch city. Holland cheeses are the most exported in the world, and the Dutch dairy industry is worth about 7 billion euros a year.
Visitors to Amsterdam should definitely stop at the Proefzolder of Henri Willig. Do you want to see how cheese is made? Experience it on Henri Willig’s Proefzolder tasting loft. The expert staff will explain in your own language how cheese is made. After the introduction and a film about this traditional craft, you can sample cheese for yourself. Try the taste sensations of the various quality cheeses over a glass of wine or beer. The tasting takes place at 4.00 pm every day and on Fridays and during the weekend also at 2.00 pm. The tasting lasts about 45 minutes. There is room for approximately 30 people per tasting.
