National Cheese Day

Date When Celebrated : June 4

Today is National Cheese Day. From breakfast to late night snack, this is a day to enjoy ample amounts of a wide variety of cheeses.

People around the world love cheeses. Americans consume on average around 31 pounds of cheese a year. We get to choose among a huge variety of flavors and textures.

Cheese is produced from pressed curds of milk. It has been a staple of our diets since ancient times, dating back as far back as 10,000 years ago. By the time of the Roman Empire, cheese had become widespread.

Depending upon who is counting, there is between 800 to 1,400 varieties of cheese to choose from, classified by taste and texture.. Unfortunately, many of these varieties are little known and hard to find. Even so, there is no shortage of varieties in the market. The flavor and texture of cheeses are influenced by temperature, aging process, and spices.

Did You Know? Cheese can be made from the milk of cows, goats, sheep and even buffalos.

It is a sheer pleasure to celebrate National Cheese Day. Eat lots of cheeses. From grilled cheese sandwiches to cheese soup and cheesecake, from American cheese to Brie, there's no shortage of cheese varieties and recipes. Holding a Cheese Tasting party, is a great way to celebrate  National Cheese Day. Ps. Don't forget to pair it with some great wines!

The Cheesy Challenge: Eat cheese today at every meal, and with every snack. Most importantly, try a variety of cheese that you've never tasted before.

The Origin of National Cheese Day:

Our research did not find the creator, or the origin of this day. It does not appear to have been created too long ago, perhaps sometime since 2,000 A.D.

There is no presidential proclamation, nor any documentation from the U.S. Congress, to support this as a true "National" day.
