Say Cheese! Midnight Moon Gouda and Amadeus Schardinger

No trip to Whole Foods is complete unless you stop by the cheese counter and indulge your lactose dreams. Today, I decided to try these two cheeses: Midnight Moon aged Gouda and the Austrian Amadeus Schardinger.

Amadeus was described as a buttery semi-firm cow's milk cheese. The problem is that it doesn't have much taste. If you want a really mild cheese for guests, this could work.

The Midnight Moon, however, had plenty of flavor. A firm aged goat's milk cheese, this Gouda was the better of the two. It was nutty with a hint of sweet on the finish. At $25.99/lb, though, I wouldn't make mac & cheese with it or buy too much at once.

Happy snacking!
