Vlaskaas was historically made only once a year, during the flax harvest festival, but as festival traditions fell away, the recipe was buried. Thankfully, in 2004, a review of Beemster’s past cheeses led to its rediscovery. Vlaskaas was obviously too good to make just once a year and is now available year-round. It’s buttery and semi-soft with unique sweet-milk flavor, notes of almond, and a touch of sharpness that adds depth.
