Description

This is a day to celebrate cheese, which comes from the milk of cows, goats, sheep and buffalo. Its age, temperature, spices, and seasonings affect its flavor and texture. Cheese is good on its own, but it also goes well with souffles, soups, and pastas, and can be paired with many foods. It many times is also paired with white or red wine.

While it cannot be definitively said why National Cheese Day is celebrated on June 4, rumor has it that a shepherd discovered Roquefort cheese on June 4, 1070. Apparently he had left bread and cheese in a cave a few days or months before and the mold had overtaken the cheese and transformed it when he returned. Could this be why we celebrate cheese on this day?

National Cheese Day is observed next on Tuesday, June 4th, 2019. It has always been observed annually on June 4th.

How to Observe

Celebrate National Cheese Day by eating cheese! Try a new cheese and put it on crackers or a sandwich. Make yourself a pizza with extra cheese. Eat some nachos. Visit a cheese factory. Make your own cheese. Try a cheese out of your comfort zone. Wear a cheesehead. Have a cheese party with friends. Buy hard, soft, and blue cheeses, as well as things to pair with them such as grapes, olives, or tomatoes. Don’t forget to buy some wine too. Let your cheese sit out for a half an hour at room temperature to give it a better texture and flavor. Then, enjoy it with your friends!
