The Flavor Experience

The inspiration for Prima Donna was to create a hybrid of Parmigiano Reggiano and Gouda, and they seem to have found a pretty good balance between the two.

The Story

This is essentially Gouda made with starter cultures that are typically used in northern Italy.  These cultures result in a sweeter cheese than you would typically find in Holland.

Usage Tips

Pair with most beers or red wines.  We love it with Black Lava Cashews or Cinnful Cocoa Pecans.


Straight From the Monger’s Mouth

"The fact that this cheese rivals Parmigiano Reggiano in sales, in an Italian cheese shop, is about all you have to say to speak to its popularity. It has been one of our most popular cheeses since we introduced it a decade ago." — Hunter F., CCP
