june 21 marks the start of summer every year. For many, this means being outside as much as possible. And then we quickly think of days out and holidays.
We hope for long warm summer evenings and many cosy moments with friends and family. Our cheese is made to be shared, so our cheese family invariably includes a well-stocked cheeseboard.
Whether you're taking a caravan holiday to Italy or you're enjoying a 'VrijMiBo' every Friday in the back garden, a tasty cheeseboard is always a good accompaniment. And that's partly because our cheese travels so easily with you.
...many of our loyal fans live abroad? They have visited us as tourists in one of the shops or on our cheese farms. And they have become so enthusiastic about our cheese that they now also order online.
Henri Willig guarantees the highest quality Dutch cheese, so if such a cheese package goes to Israel, Malta, Sweden or America, for example, we want the products to arrive in good condition. That is why our round baby cheeses are provided with a paraffin layer, which encloses the cheese and protects it against external influences. And our sliced pieces are vacuum packed.
During a holiday period, the cheese can easily be on the road for days, even a few weeks. So when people visit our shop during their holiday, they can travel on with the cheese in their bag or suitcase. Once at home the cheese goes into the fridge, or is eaten straight away.
And if a tourist can travel with our cheese, then it is also no problem to take the cheese along for a picnic or a day on the boat. Just don't forget to pack the cheese slicer!
Some of our colleagues always take our delicious cheese with them when they go on holiday. And I myself, for example, take extra cheese with me to the South of France every year. Suppose we have car trouble, then I always have a delicious Dutch cheese to give away as a thank you for the help.
Is cheese also on top of your list when you go on holiday? And if so, what kind of cheese should you really not miss in your suitcase? If it is difficult to choose, I invite you to visit one of our shops. There you can taste all the cheeses and make a good choice.
By the way, our new seasonal flavour is the Tzatziki cheese! How summery can we get? An authentic Tzatziki consists of creamy full bodied yoghurt, crunchy cucumber, fresh garlic and a balanced blend of herbs. We have replaced the yoghurt with our signature full creamy 48+ cheese, in which we have combined the other ingredients. This has created a delicious summery cheese with the recognisable taste of Tzatziki.
Highly recommended, happy summer!
Check out Henri Willig's delicious recipes below.
Peel and crush 3 clove3 of garlic. Bring a medium pan of water to the boil and cook the garlic cloves with it. Cut the sweet potato lengthwise into 4 equal slices. Cook the sweet potato slices al dente for five minutes and rinse with cold water. Chop the cheese, red onion, cucumber and gherkin. Grill the sweet potato on one side on the barbecue or in a pan. Grill the burgers as well. Remove half of the sweet potato slices and burgers from the barbecue or pan and place them with the grilled side up. Place the cheese slices on top and grill again bottom-side down on the barbecue or in the pan. Finish the burgers by placing the spinach on top of the cheese, then the burgers with cheese on top and the rest of the garnish on top. Brush the sweet potato slices you will use for the top of the cheeseburger with crème fraîche and place them on top of the burger.
Chop the tomatoes and put them in large bowl. Sprinkle salt over the tomatoes and leave for 15 minutes. Cut the onion into rings and the cucumber into cubes. Also open the Tzatziki cheese and cut it into pieces. Add the onion and cucumber to the tomatoes. In a separate bowl, make the dressing with the olive oil, vinegar and water. Stir well and then mix with the salad. Add pepper to taste. Finally, add the Tzatziki cheese. Enjoy your meal, or as the Greeks say, Kali orexi!
