Dutch cheese

Cheese, or kaas, is huge in Holland. Along with the many cheese shops and market vendors of Amsterdam, restaurants often offer cheese plates for dessert (or starters, in our case!). Here we had a flavorful 2-year-old farmer's cheese, a rosemary goat cheese, and a spicy young cheese w/black pepper, served w/berries and sweet raisin bread.
