When is Cheese Day?

It's national cheese day on the 4th June.

A Brief History of National Cheese Day

Oh, National Cheese Day! Celebrated annually on June 4th, this heartwarming day lets us honor, appreciate, and of course, devour, all sorts of cheese. From Brie to Cheddar, Blue to Gorgonzola, albeit Mascarpone to Mozzarella, National Cheese Day allows room at the table for all. Back in 2018, the internet saw almost 26,000 mentions of this glorious day, topping the list of cheese-dedicated online chatter.

Not just Gouda, it's Great!

But why is there a whole day dedicated to cheese you might ask? Well, on what other day would it be societally acceptable to eat cheese for breakfast, lunch, and dinner? There also seems to be some form of ethereal joy in sharing your favorite variety of cheese with friends, or shouting from the rooftops about your love for a rather less known, obscure variety, be that the tantalizingly tangy Tomme or the notoriously pungent Stinking Bishop.

Spread the Love, Spread the Cheese

So, whether you're a self-proclaimed cheese whiz, a casual fan, or even lactose intolerant (thank goodness for alternatives), join us in celebrating National Cheese Day. Might we also suggest a cheese-themed party at your place with guests bringing along their favorite types or maybe a picnic in the park with cheese sandwiches and a triumphant fondue to end the day?

Did you know?

Did you know that the world's most expensive cheese is Pule, a Serbian cheese made from the milk of Balkan donkeys? It costs a whopping $600 per pound!
