Cheese History

I’m very excited about this post. I just love cheese. Since I discovered making my own cheese was not as hard as I thought it would be, I figured I might as well go all out and share all of the wonderful cheesy information I have found. I’m going to try to separate the links based on recipes and historical information.  If the link has both I will put it under recipes and make note that it has research as well.
