πŸ“œ History of National Cheese Fondue Day

It is unknown who created the first cheese. According to some accounts, it was created by accident by an Arabian trader. As he walked through the desert, the merchant packed his milk in a bag constructed from a sheep’s stomach. The milk separated into curd and whey due to the rennet in the pouch lining and the heat of the sun. He discovered that the whey quenched his thirst and that the cheese had a delicious flavor that kept him content for a long time.

Eating fondue is associated with several distinct customs. The eating of the crispy cheese left at the bottom of the pot is known as’ la religieuse.’ Another tradition is what occurs when your piece of bread slips off your fork. If someone’s bread falls off, they should have to pay for a round of beverages for the table!
