Cheese history
Archaeologists state that humankind was already eating cheese B.C. 6000.  If the fairytale is correct an Eastern Asian horseman before his long journey to the desert filled up his saddle bag with a milk. The heath, horse in a motion and the enzyms of the leather bag turned the milk to a lumpy acidic liquid. The rider filtered the drink and ate the dairy like bits. Egyptian wall paintings, Jewish Biblical stories, Greek philosophers and scholars’ debates all prove that cheese has been loved by men since ancient times. Romans had already been manufacturing it and exported, sold cheese to other Mediterranean countries. All tribes of the Roman Empire got familiar with this dairy product, it became part of their lives. In the Middle Ages monks and monasteries were the centre of cheese production. Hallelujah! In Renaissance the popularity of cheese dropped as church was spreading news on cheese being unhealthy. The misbelief lasted until 19th century when the revival of cheese eating started. Production kicked off in Hungarian factories as well and since then the stardom of cheese has been on.

The following are the most popular cheese in Hungary. Do you know the story behind camembert? What does mozzarella mean?

Trappista (trappist, portsalut) cheese

Hungary’s favourite cheese, many Hungarians take it as a Hungarian original. However, trappist is a French cheese first produced by monks of Notre Dame de Port du Salut monastery. It is a semi-hard cheese made of cow milk, easy to slice and grind. Trappista has literally become a family member at Hungarian houses.

Roquefort

Many people think Roquefort is the King of cheese. The most popular French blue cheese is coming from the southern part of the country from Roquefort-sur-Soulzon. This region is well-known of its limestone soil where the great green meadows are perfect food for sheep. Their unique sheep milk gives that smooth and mouth-watering flavour to Roquefort cheese.  

Mozzarella

Mozzarella is the famous baby of South Italy, one of the basic ingredients of Mediterranean kitchens. First was made near to Naples. The city is also known as the homeland of pizza. The original mozzarella is produced from buffalo milk and called Mozzararella di bufala. The meaning of the word mozzarella is ‘to tear, tearing’. Big pieces are torn from the cheese posh then given a ball shape by hand. There is not enough buffalo milk in Italy anymore so the most common version of mozzarella is produced from cow milk.

Parmesan
Parmigiano means ‘from Parma’. This extra hard cheese started off in the 13th century. Out of Europe parmesan like cheese is called parmesan however, its quality is far from the original parmesan. If you want to go for the real one, always ask for Parmigiano Reggiano.  Parmesan’s aging time is between 12 months and 3 years. 

Camembert
This sweet, smooth cheese sprang from the heart of Normandy. The countryside’s gastronomy is based on four pillars: locally grown apple, meat, seafood and milk. Normandy is famous of its high quality milk that is the base of the original camembert and gives rich taste, creamy texture to this delicious cheese.

Feta cheese

Feta cheese is the symbol of Greece, was already popular in the ancient times. In Odyssey you can read the full recipe of this sheep milk cheese. Feta’s taste is given by green herbs. Its solid character, snow white colour, creamy texture made it to one of the most popular cheeses.

Cheddar

It was Romans who introduced hard cheese with Brits. Cheddar originally was only produced in England and was stored in the caves of little town called Cheddar where the temperature and humidity were perfect to mature cheese. The real cheddar is aged between 2 and 5 years.
