Say Cheese With Little Thumbs Up!

What's the best resemblance of smile? To me, it's cheese! You have the smile by just saying the word :)
Do you like cheese? I do! Almost all kinds! :)
Hence my choice of ingredient for this month's Little Thumbs Up (LTU) which I host


 
 
It is a brilliant idea initiated by Zoe from Bake For Happy Kids and Doreen from My Little Favourite D.I.Y.
It's a cooking and baking event where everybody is welcomed to participate. A different theme is chosen for every month, in particular is the ingredients used
You may view the details HERE

A little sharing about cheese
(from my brief googling result LOL)

Basically, cheese is a food derived from milk that is produced in a wide range of flavors, textures, and forms by curding of the milk protein - casein
It comprises proteins and fat from milk, usually the milk of cows, buffalo, goats, or sheep.  During production, the milk is usually acidified, and adding the complex of enzymes causes curding. The solids are separated and pressed into final form. Some cheeses have molds on the rind or throughout. Most cheeses melt at cooking temperature

So many types of cheese available all around the world
Texture and flavours are highly dependant on the milk used (from which animal)
Also the processing does matter. As well as additional flavouring agent used, such as herbs, spices, etc

I never knew there are so many types of cheeses!
Also I was not aware there are so many kinds of texture of cheese
There is this website called cheese.com where I found out about those facts. It's really informative!
It has information about types of cheeses by country, by milk used, by texture, and even cheeses for vegetarian. You can click on each type of cheese for more detailed info
There's tips to about storage and serving cheese, how to cut cheese, and even cheese and wine pairing




So, please join us! You may cook and/or bake any recipe with cheese as one of the ingredient
