Roomano is a hard Gouda-like cheese from Friesland in the northern part of The Netherlands. The major difference from Gouda is the percentage of butterfat in the cheese. Gouda contains 48% butterfat or more, while Roomano contains less than 48% butterfat.
The cheese is made from cows' milk, and is typically matured for 4 or more years. Its flavour is very complex, salty and sweet with hints of butterscotch or toffee. It is a rare cheese to find, even in The Netherlands and is often confused with the Italian Romano.
