Within Amsterdam’s picturesque canal-side shopping district, De 9 Straatjes (“The Nine Streets”), you’ll find De Kaaskamer van Amsterdam, which has to be one of the world’s most wonderful cheese shops. Obviously there’s a lot of gouda, much of which is organic, along with ready-made food—homemade salads, sandwiches, and snacks—as well as specialty hams and wines. And should you be so inclined after visiting, they ship to more than 25 countries, including the U.S.
