For this competition Mona Dairy chose a delicious Gouda from their range.

One of the world’s most popular cheeses, Gouda is made from cow’s milk and its dense but springy texture compliments the aromatic, almost caramel-like flavour. 

The recipe can be a sandwich or a food to go dish, but Mona Dairy’s Gouda must be the key ingredient.
