Twitter – Twitter Is Loving This Hilarious Cheese History Observation
After a recent tweet from @Ryan_Ken_Acts had many people debating the curious and tasty history of cheese and other delicacies, this food for thought raised an interesting question: Is one person attributed to the first cut of cheese? While that cheesy tweet is rooted in food fact, the truth is that people enjoy slices of cheese without an inkling of how they arrived on their plate. While the moon might be made of cheese, and a mouse might have eaten its way through the holes in Swiss cheese, the reality is that there is a difference between story and reality.
According to the International Dairy Association, the exact origin of cheese making is unknown, although cheese has been around for 4,000 years. Whether it’s the story of an Arabian merchant storing milk in a sheep’s stomach, which turned into curd, or the popularity of cheese in Ancient Rome, the reality is that one person took that first bite, enjoyed it, and cajoled someone else into eating it, too. In some ways, it is similar to the people who take a bite of any questionable food and pass it on simply because you “must” try it. Whether cheese was the first food trend or just a great food discovery can be debated for the ages. Still, it is one of many foods that one brave person ate, enjoyed, and convinced others to join in on the food discovery. Perhaps it might be time to enjoy another slice of culinary curiosity?
