Where did cheese come from?
Humans have been making and eating cheese since prehistoric times. No one knows exactly who first developed cheese, but many food historians credit its discovery to an Arabic nomad who poured milk into a leather bottle made from a sheep's stomach before journeying across the desert more than five thousand years ago. When he stopped to drink, he discovered the milk had been transformed into curds and whey by the heat of the sun and the rennet in the sheep's stomach.
