Did you know? Cheese is the most stolen food on Earth, that there are over 2,000 varieties of cheeses! the #1 cheese recipe in America is "Macaroni and Cheese", it's is on the Top 10 list of children's favorite foods. what appears to be the remains of cheese has been found in Egyptian tombs over 4,000 years old! Cheese was popular in ancient Greece and Rome, but fresh milk and butter were not. The terms "Big Wheel" and "Big Cheese" originally referred to those who were wealthy enough to purchase a whole wheel of cheese. Cheese takes up about 1/10 the volume of the milk it was made from.

The 1st“cheese cake”may have been created on the Grk isl of Samos.Anthropologists excavated cheese molds there which were dated circa 2,000 B.C. In Greece there is evidence that it was served to athletes during the first Olympic games in 776BC.
LOL......If the athletes were served cheese cake....trust me, I'd have done whatever necessary to master a sport of some kind!!
The thing about "being" a huge cheese lover is that it can "make" you a huge cheese lover (pardon the pun). Did you know traditional Mozzarella cheese is made from milk of water buffalos herded in very few countries such as Italy and Bulgaria!
If you like parmesan or romano try Locatelli Pecorino Romano,considered the world’s finest grating cheese,hand-crafted from 100% pure sheep’s milk.My dad called it locatel,would grade it himself &give us kids chunks. Unbelievably good,more bite!
If more 'bite' means spicier, I am not into spicy foods. Thank you.
Not spicy, more bite like sharper, try some you'll see what I mean, but it is a bit (pun intended) more expensive than Parm or Romano!
This joke is worth it’s weight in gouda! What's the richest cheese in the world?
... Paris Stilton!
You ever try cannibal cheese?
I have not heard of that term, what is it?
Cannibal cheese, like
Ew, no. My grandmother used to eat that super stinky cheese though and the whole house would have a stench. No way I could eat something that smelled that bad.
Mslizzy, didn't you know the best things in life are brie.
Rofl, tsadjatko, but no--I do not like brie. When my eldest was in high school advanced cooking class, she had an assignment to do a taste test of the types I mentioned; we hated them--plus, they are expensive & we can't afford, so no great loss
Well, OK I think I'm going to have some morbier while I Iisten to my R & Brie CD !
MMMMMMM, Parmesan, I love it, better yet try Locatelli Pecorino Romano, especially on spaghetti!
Did you know there are over 1700 different cheeses. My favorites might well change by the time I get done tasting them all. http://www.cheese.com/alphabetical/
Extra Sharp Cheddar, well that's mature!
more matured than the rest!
tsad...this has become a cheese education. Thanks for all the "after dinner" facts. So, the maturing accounts for the sharpness? My mother would be pleased that you recommended Locatelli Pecorino Romano! Yummy in Greek olive salad!
love? Research suggests eating cheese releases opiates called casomorphins, enough constant ingestion of these euphoria-inducing casomorphins can lead to dependence and,you guessed it,even withdrawal symptoms when going cheese-less cold turkey.
