Cheesy Dutch treats on Sint Maarten

The Amsterdam Cheese & Liquor Store is a very fine representative of all things Dutch, with 50 varieties of cheese, them, all imported from the Netherlands – as well as every kind of cheese-related item from slicers and skewers to cutting boards and serving dishes. Owner Étienne Rogers is happy to share his knowledge of which cheeses complement which rums with which crackers. Forget about your Cheddar and Camembert – there’s coconut, pepper, pumpkin, truffle, jalapeño, cumin and asparagus – to name a few. But Etienne heartily defends the Gouda.
