Cheese is made from milk, usually from one of these 3 animals: cows, goats or sheep. It is produced by the coagulation of the milk protein casein. Typically, the milk is acidified and addition of the enzyme rennet causes coagulation. The solids are separated and pressed into final form. Some cheeses have molds on the rind or throughout. Most cheeses melt at cooking temperature.
There are thousands of varieties of cheeses found all over the world. Every culture seems to have their own cheeses. Where there is milk.. there is cheese. The staff at Medbery Marketplace in Roscoe Village is excited to share their knowledge of cheese with you. We offer private cheese tastings for your family, friends or business associates that are entertaining as well as educational.
