Cheese & Clogs: Holland’s signature
Overview: I was amazed to see tens of different varieties of cheese during my visit to the Netherlands. Each tastes distinctly unique from the other. I had the opportunity to explore the cheese making industry in the Netherlands. The staff explained in brief about the connection of cheese with Dutch culture, then showed us the cow barn from where they get the milk for preparing cheese, followed by the actual manufacturing unit.
Another unique Dutch practice is to wear traditional clogs footwear while inside the cheese factory. These clogs are also manufactured in-house, and, they are really uncomfortable, as I found out, maybe because it was made entirely made out of wood. We managed to take one of the pieces as souvenir.
