KaasDoop (South-Holland Cheese Dip) Print Email

KaasDoop translated into English means "Cheese Dip" but is a type of fondue. This version of KaasDoop is from Holland's mid-west province of South-Holland.

10.5 ounces (300 grams) grated Gouda cheese
1.5 cups (.4 liter) milk
2 tablespoons (15 grams) corn starch
2 tablespoons brandy
pepper and nutmeg
brown bread (dark) for dipping

Boil milk in a heavy saucepan. Add cheese a few tablespoons at a time stirring until each addition is melted before adding another. Combine the brandy and the cornstarch into a smooth paste and add to the cheese mixture and stir until blended. Season with black pepper and nutmeg to taste. Transfer the mixture to a fondue pot. Keep the heat source beneath the pot on just high enough to maintain the heat but do not bring to a boil. Serve with cubed dark brown or rye bread.
