NATIONAL CHEESE DAY

National Cheese Day is observed annually on June 4th. Which is perfect time since June is National Dairy Month.

Cheese is produced from the pressed curds of milk. The milk can come from cows, buffalo, goats or sheep. Temperature and aging affect the flavor and texture of the cheese as well as spices and other seasonings added during the process.

Excellent as a snack on its own, cheese is also a perfect ingredient in pasta, soups, souffle and many other recipes.

National Dairy Month started out as National Milk Month in 1937 as a way to promote drinking milk. It was initially created to stabilize the dairy demand when production was at a surplus, but has now developed into an annual tradition that celebrates the contributions the dairy industry has made to the world After the National Dairy Council stepped in to promote the cause, the name soon changed to “Dairy Month.”
