    If cheese is made of milk, then why do we associate it with being yellow or orange?

    Nope, we don't all associate it with being yellow or orange.  I associate it with being white, because my favourite cheese is Wensleydale (a white cheese, obviously!).   'More cheese Gromit?'

    If you are referring to orange or yellowish cheddar, the orange color has nothing to do with milk, it is the addition of a coloring - most likely annatto.

    Because it is golden and full of the riches of the world, much like that other precious metal. This is exactly why we wrote the book Green Gold: Pairing Honeys & Cheeses. You'd be surprised to see how much honeys and cheeses are seen as possible tools to being about economic viability to emerging nations and peoples of the world. You can see more on my hubs, which I'd link if I knew how!
