There’s no reason to feel bleu because it’s National Cheese Lover’s Day! It’s a day to celebrate all of the gouda in your life, and be thankful for the hundreds of cheeses that exist around the world.
It was probably an accident that led to the creation of the many types of cheesy goodness. Historians say an ancient legend tells of an Arabian merchant who put his supply of milk into a pouch made of sheep’s stomach, as he set off on a long journey. The rennet in the lining of the pouch, combined with the heat, caused the milk to separate into curds and whey. Voila, the first cheese was made.
