Father's Day is the day to honour and appreciate the amazing fathers who play an important role in our lives. At Henri Willig, we not only celebrate this special day, but also embrace the essence of family in every aspect of our business.

As a family-run business, we understand the importance of nurturing family bonds, creating memorable experiences and sharing the love of artisanal Dutch cheeses. When you step into our shops, you become part of our extended family and are greeted with warmth and genuine hospitality. Father's Day is an opportunity to create treasured memories and express gratitude to the (in-law) fathers and men who are father figures in our lives.

Sharing the love of artisanal Dutch cheeses

With our wide range, we invite you to experience the love, passion and expertise that goes into every cheese. Our cheeses are made using traditional methods passed down within the Willig family. This ensures an unrivalled taste that captures the essence of Dutch craftsmanship. By sharing our cheeses, we want to create moments of joy and connection between families, friends and loved ones.


Embracing the future

As we celebrate Father's Day, we also look forward to the future with enthusiasm and optimism. Our recent expansion into new locations, symbolises our commitment to share our passion for Dutch cheeses with a wider audience.

We are therefore delighted to announce the opening of two new shops, each with its own enchanting charm!

Giethoorn: Known as the "Venice of the Netherlands", Giethoorn is an enchanting village known for its picturesque canals, quaint bridges and beautiful houses with thatched roofs. Our new shop in Giethoorn aims to introduce both locals and visitors to Dutch cheese culture amid this enchanting setting.


Düsseldorf: Düsseldorf is a vibrant, cosmopolitan and historic city that embraces diversity and offers a rich culinary scene. Our new shop in Düsseldorf brings the essence of Henri Willig to this vibrant metropolis, where residents and visitors can enjoy the finest Dutch cheeses and gourmet delicacies.

We warmly invite you to discover our varied selection of gifts in one of the many shops or our webshop. So now also in Giethoorn and Düsseldorf!

Making baguette with granny meatballs in tomato sauce gratinated with cheese

A delicious recipe with meatballs and lots of cheese is easy to make: Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Mix the minced meat, egg, onion, garlic, oregano, basil, paprika, salt and pepper in a bowl. Knead everything well together. Form small meatballs from the mixture. You can decide how big you want the meatballs to be. Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Fry the meatballs in the pan until browned on all sides. Add the diced tomatoes and tomato puree to the pan. Stir everything well and bring the sauce to a boil. Simmer for about 10 minutes to allow the flavours to mix well. Add any extra salt and pepper to taste. Meanwhile, grate the cheese -about 60 to 100 grams- but more is always possible! Slice open your baguette, place the meatballs inside and sprinkle with grated Gouda matured by Henri Willig. Put the whole thing in a 180-degree oven for another 7 minutes so the cheese melts.  You could also use the airfryer, in which case the baking time will be shorter.
