It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that the world is crazy about cheese. We absolutely love it! There are so many flavors, varieties and ways to eat it in all its creamy, tasty goodness. We practically dream about baked brie in a puff pastry, crackers smothered in slabs of velvety goat cheese, and how about thick cuts of traditional American cheese layered in a sandwich? If that doesn't get your heart racing, we presume a luscious, generous serving of cheesecake may do the trick. Is there anything cheese can't do?
For such a common food, it turns out, we really don't know that much about cheese. How far does it date back? Can cheese alter our dreams? What's up with stinky Limburger cheese? Where did the dreadful expression, "The Big Cheese" come from?
We wanted the answers to these questions, so we went on a cheese hunt! Check out our slideshow above to see what we revealed.
