” Gayo Azul cheeses will make a perfect addition to any at-home celebration. Known for authenticity, flavor, and premium quality, it’s no wonder why Gayo Azul® cheeses have been a staple in homes for over half a century.”
Some of the Gayo Azul varieties include:
Gayo Azul Dutch Gouda – this versatile mild and creamy cheese is excellent on a cheeseboard, in a casserole, as a topping, or used in sauces and soups. Also available in slices, it is delicious on a cold sandwich or melts beautifully in a hot one.
Gayo Azul Queso Blanco – a fresh mild white cheese that holds its shape well, making it ideal for pan grilling. It also has a nice crumbly texture and is great for topping salads, soups, and tacos.
Gayo Azul Dutch Edam – this cheese is a bit firmer than Gouda, yet has a rich flavor and smooth, creamy texture. Easy to cut on cheese boards, shred in baking dishes, and cube in salads and vegetable dishes.
Gayo Azul Sliced Swiss – a rindless, European Swiss with perfect eyes and a sweet, nutty taste that works on both cold and grilled sandwiches.
