Yes, you can find Goat cheese (made from goat), Pule cheese (made from donkey milk), Moose cheese (derived from Moose milk) and many other types! Fun fact, Pule cheese is actually considered the world’s most expensive cheese as it comes from the milk of Balkan donkeys from Serbia.

This Italian hard cheese is well-known around the world as the “King of Cheeses”, yet it is not the best-selling cheese in the world!  

Originated in the English village of Cheddar, this cheese is the most popular cheese in the UK!

Though known as one of the world’s most popular cheeses, this Netherland’s cheese is not the best-selling one.

Despite the popular belief, mice don’t like cheese! Given a choice, they would go for sweets or carbs! They would still eat cheese of course but it does not necessarily mean they love it. 

Yes, the holes in the cheese are actually caused by the bacteria that turn milk into cheese. One of the bacteria, namely P. Shermani, releases carbon dioxide and forms bubbles in the cheese. These little air pockets cause holes of the cheese. 

Temperature is of utmost importance in making cheese, however, it is not the main reason that causes holes in the cheese! 

Maturing time is one of the key factors in making cheese, however, it is not the reason you are looking for! 

How many correct answers did you get? Nevertheless, you still deserve some cheesy indulgence! Craving for cheese dishes and would love to dive in one? Flex your fingers as we have the top restaurants that serve lip-smacking cheeses dishes to tempt your palate

Famous around the globe, pizza has won the heart of even the most discerning diners! If you are one of them, it’s time to indulge in our “bite-sized” facts and figure out how pizza travels the world and ends up on your table! 

 

1/ The Origin of Pizza

As pizza becomes ubiquitous, there are countless stories of how it was invented and in fact, most of them are half-truths, fables or hard-nosed opinions. Pizza is originated from Italy? It might stun you a little but Italy cannot really take the credit for inventing pizza! According to archeological evidence, pizza could be originated from the Middle East. It is believed that the pizza nowadays is actually a part of the lineage of Greek yeasted flatbreads (which is called “pitta” in Greek)! 

2/ What Makes Italian Pizza Become Popular All Around The World?

It is no doubt that Italy has successfully made pizza a phenomenal dish that is loved by foodies internationally. But have you ever wondered how?  Pizza lovers would be familiar with the story of how Queen Margherita got obsessed with pizza and made it the national dish! However, pizza scholar Zachary Nowak believes that it is hardly the truth! The fact is, during World War II, many allied soldiers stationed in Italy fell in love with this dish and brought with them the recipes when they got back home. Also, numerous Italian immigrants have traveled the world with this delectable delicacy. In the sixties, it was a big hit in America and well-known since then! 

 

3/ What Are The Differences Between Italian Pizza and American Pizza?

You might fall in love with both yet what distinguishes them from each other? Well, the key difference is actually in the sauce itself! While American prefers to use slow-cooked tomato sauce, Italian loves to use puréed fresh tomato instead! The crust and shape are also important characteristics to differentiate the two versions. To be called ‘authentic Italian’, the pizza must be round and no more than 13 and three-quarter inches in diameter with a crust of three-quarters of an inch thick or less. The dough must be kneaded by hand and prepared from traditional types of flour, yeast, salt and tomatoes.
