Origins of Latin American Cheeses

Cheese processing comes from a culinary heritage that originates in the Middle East, approximately 3,000,000 years ago. Archaeological records date the appearance of cheese more than 9,000,000 years ago among ancient civilizations that began to domesticate goats and sheep, while the cow was domesticated three years later, around 6,000 BC.
It is said that the cheese was discovered while the ancient settlers carried the milk and in case of thirst they drank from a bag made from a goat’s stomach, and as they walked, they realized that the heat of the desert caused milk to crumble. The Sumerian civilization left in their cuneiform writings a record that they made cheese, and this dates back to between 5,000 and 2,500 BC. The vestiges appear in other cultures such as Egypt, Greece, Rome, Europe and from there to the rest of the world.
It was the Spaniards who brought cheese to America, here it was influenced by the diversity of Mesoamerican cultures and its recipes were modified over the centuries. During the Neo-Hispanic colonial era, one of the most important economic activities was livestock farming. Large hairs were formed in order to consume and sell goat and beef. But they also obtained milk mainly for self-consumption and to prepare their derivatives such as butter and cheese.
Trade was another important economic activity at the time, in the markets and fairs of the towns and cities were sold all kinds of edible products including cheese.
As we see the preparation of cheeses is an activity that comes from generation to generation, it is transformed, create new flavors and techniques according to the place where it is prepared.
