Cheese is one of the most loved food items by millions of people from all over the world. It is being spread in different varieties, and cheese has been celebrated in some way or the other on ten out of twelve months in the calendar with eighteen plus different cheese variety celebration days. National Cheese Lover’s Day celebrates the entire cheese varieties and those who love every other cheese.
Cheese is a very popular food across the world. Cheese is highly valued for its long life, portability, and high content of fat, protein, calcium, and phosphorus. It is also more compact and has a longer shelf life than that of the milk. At various stages bacteria, enzymes or fungi are added. When it is further maintained under a certain controlled temperature, time and moisture result in the desired taste, color, and texture. Sometimes herbs and spices are also added as flavoring agents. Cheese is more flavorful at room temperature.
There are over 900 cheese types that are classified by taste and texture. Depending on the variety of cheese, its nutritional values will differ. Most notably, the world’s largest cheese was displayed on this day at the New York World’s Fair in 1964 that weighed over 34,000 pounds.
Here are the primary classifications and some examples:
fresh cheese (ricotta);
soft cheese (feta);
semi-soft cheese (Fontina);
semi-hard cheese (Gouda);
hard cheese (Cheddar);
double or triple crème cheese (Brillat-Savarin);
blue cheese (Gorgonzola);
washed rind cheese (Limburger);
and bloomy rind cheese (Brie)

History of National Cheese Lover’s Day
The history, origin, and the founder of the National Cheese Lover’s Day are unknown. There is no mention about the year from when this Day has been celebrated. However, cheese has a long history and tradition. Cheese is a food obtained from milk and has a wide range of flavors, forms, and textures by the coagulation of the milk protein casein. The milk obtained is usually taken from the proteins and fat from the milk of cows, buffalo, goats, or sheep. The earliest archaeological evidence of cheese-making record dates back to 5,500 BCE. Several years ago, milk was transported and stored in sheep stomachs and left for a few days until the proteins would separate into curds and whey. Now the curds are salted and left to age.

Besides these activities above, National today recommended some things to do on this day:
Dare to go beyond cheddar
Get to know the cheese-monger at your grocery store, and get the slice on something new. Will today be the day you try that mysterious ‘cave-aged gruyere’ or give yourself over to the wonders of a Danish Blue? Whatever you buy, it’s sure to be delicious. It is cheese, after all. You can’t go wrong!
Be a Fondue!
A big vat of bubbly deliciousness, that’s been mixed up with wine or beer? This National Cheese Lover’s Day, try making your own fondue! It’s basically a giant vat of melted cheese—we think you can handle that. What are you going to dip in it, you ask? Buy an assortment of meats, bread, and fresh veggies. The meat will cook when you dip it in the hot fondue, and the bread and veggies will warm to the perfect temperature.
Make your own
Ricotta (and the Indian cheese called ‘paneer’) are easy to make at home—and need little more than whole milk, lemon or vinegar, a big pot, and cheesecloth for straining. Check your local stores for fancier kits that can help you try making your own feta or camembert.
