Are you a cheese whiz?

Cheese is one of the most popular foods around the world. Do you know that the most popular cheese recipe in the US is mac and cheese? Here are more fun facts: After being processed, cheese takes up only about one-tenth the volume of the milk it was made from. Pizza Hut, a popular restaurant chain, is the largest cheese-using restaurant in the world, using over 300 million pounds of cheese every year. For optimal flavor and aroma development, cheese should be taken out of the refrigerator an hour before serving. It is advisable to avoid storing cheese with strong-smelling foods like pickles since it tends to absorb the aromas and tastes of other foods.
