There are thousands of varieties of cheese, and while we may not be able to try them all, we can at least learn a little about them. Let's have a clear understanding of what cheese is and how it is obtained before we learn about the different types and purposes of cheese. Cheese is a milk derivative product that is made primarily from the coagulation of a milk protein called casein. Cheese is normally solid at room temperature and melts when cooked. The entire process of manufacturing cheese entails acidifying the milk, adding the appropriate amount of required components, salt, and bacterial enzymes such as rennet, then heating it to 110°C and separating the solid curd from the leftover liquid known as whey, and finally compressing the split solids into desired shapes.
The most well-known cheese in the world is mozzarella. Pizza, pasta, lasagna, sandwiches, and other popular dishes all include it. Its origins may be traced back to the southern portion of Italy, and it is traditionally made using buffalo milk. Fresh mozzarella has a silky, soft, creamy texture with a mild flavor. Water buffalo milk is used in the classic Italian version; cow's milk imitations of various quality are also available. Because these animals are only herded in a few countries, particularly Italy and Bulgaria, most mozzarella is now created from cow's milk; indeed, much of the mozzarella cheese sold in our local shops is derived from cow's milk. To get the most out of it, eat it at room temperature.
