If there’s one delicacy you could virtually eat anywhere, anytime, and at any size, it’d be cheese. You can just have a bite of that delicious cheese, munch it alongside meaty delicacies, and even put cheese spread on your bread. Perhaps you are curious to learn more about cheese, so here are six fascinating facts for you.

History. People have been eating cheese for so long as anyone can remember, even well before documented history. Historians believe that cheese making started as early as 8,000 BC to as late as 3,000 BC when sheep were tamed. There is a story that cheese production was incidentally uncovered simply by storing milk in a container made from an animal’s stomach, where the milk transformed into curd and whey by the rennet inside. In those days, animal skins and blown up internal organs were utilized to store food.

Art. Producing cheese later became a form of art. Large Roman families got special cooks that later established methods for smoking and incorporating various flavors into cheese, which were eventually passed on elsewhere. Expectedly, resources in those locations allowed various varieties to be created.

Age. If you’re the same as most people, you probably prefer the cheddar variety in your local food store. Alternatively, some folks also love aged cheese. Rather similar to wine, cheeses that are stored for extended periods eventually produce a sharp, powerful yet unique taste. Aged cheese is quite costly, normally selling as candy-like confections for about $60 per pound. They are best savored in tiny portions to last in your fridge for a while.

Scotch. You’re probably thinking: Scotch and cheese complement each other? In the annual Wisconsin Cheese Originals festival, specific brands of cheese are found to go well with scotch. Such cheeses would make a great gourmet cheese gift for your family and friends who crave for cheeses of different flavors.

Make. There are several known cheese makers around, crafting and developing the goody ever since 19th century. Manufacturers of cheese provide for over 2 billion pounds of cheesy goodness each year. Some even offer a Master Cheese Maker course for those serious enough to perfect the craft, similar to those in Europe for making goods like cheese dips or aged cheese.

There is a lot more to understand about cheeses. But one thing is without a doubt: Cheese, regardless if in solid form or liquid dip mix, is here to last. Read more about cheeses at eHow.com and MSN.com.
