What You Need To Know About Edam Cheese And Wine

Edam is a very recognizable Dutch cheese. This pale yellow cheese is traditionally sold in balls coated with paraffin. Edam aged for at least 17 weeks is coated with black wax, rather than the usual red or yellow. It was once the world's most popular cheese, in part because it travels and ages well. You may be happy to learn that Edam has a very low fat content. Edam is a good fruit cheese; mild Edam goes well with peaches, melons, apricots, and cherries. Aged Edam is often eaten with pears and apples. And remember, edam is the only cheese that is made backwards. (E D A M, M A D E)

In addition to the wines mentioned in our food pairing table you might consider a Gewurtztraminer or a Viognier.
