January 20th National Cheese Lovers Day

January 20th National Cheese Lovers Day

Well count me in, I love cheese! Then we get into the facts of how cheese probably came into being in the first place and your love for it may decline somewhat. So, I won’t get into those details because today is Cheese Lovers Day not, I Am Grossed Out By How Cheese Was Discovered Day. It is believed cheese was first discovered around 5,500 BCE in Poland. Shortly there-after someone first cut the cheese. There are over 1,400 varieties of cheese today with many of the flavors being created by adding bacteria, enzymes and fungi to alter the flavors. Yummy!

How to celebrate – Have some cheese. Throw a cheese tasting party. Make a list of your favorite cheeses.
