Cheese is an ancient food. The origin predates recorded history; the earliest evidence of cheese making had been found in Egyptian tombs, dating to about 2000 BC. The earliest cheeses were likely to have been quite sour and salty, similar in texture to rustic cottage cheese and feta. The Romans began to make hard cheeses for their legionaries’ supplies.
