1. Cheese was created over 4,000 years ago-by accident
Amazingly, one of our favourite foods might never have been discovered if it weren’t for a mistake. Legend has it the first cheese was created accidentally, by storing milk in a container lined with an animal’s stomach. An enzyme from the stomach caused the milk to separate into liquid (whey) and solids (curd). The curd? That’s cheese. (Want to learn to make cheese at home? Start with foolproof ricotta.)
