National Cheese Lovers' Day

The pursuit of cheese stretches back thousands of years where apparently the first cheese was created via sheer happenstance, the product of an Arabian merchant who stored his milk in a sheep's stomach, only to find days later that the milk had separated into curds and whey.  The oldest recorded cheese making enters the record books around 7500 years ago, from archaeological remains found in an ancient cattle-rearing village in what is now Poland.  The Romans spread the concept of cheesemaking north to Europe, where the practice flourished under the watchful eye of monks.  Today there are some 1400 varieties of chees in the world.

Did you know that 4% of the world's cheese is stolen each year, making cheese the number one stolen food item on Earth. Let's celebrate National Cheese Lover's Day.  Enjoy!!!
