Overberg was jointly awarded best new cheese in the world at the World Cheese Awards in 2015-16. Modelled on the Old Amsterdamer, this cheese defines artisanal and hand-made.
Produced by hand in our tiny 1300 L vat (yields 130 kg). In the curd cutting process, we use a special cheese knife that we have had for more than 20 years!
This cheese also undergoes a unique pressing process to drain moisture out. Curd-washed to ensure creaminess, this cheese is made in small 4kg and 15 kg heads. Uses the well-known probiotic culture for the fermentation, Lactobacillus acidophilus.
Tip for chefs: this cheese is wonderful ‘raw’ and doesn’t cook very well.
