Cheese is a dairy foodstuff made from the curdled milk of various animals, most frequently cows, but often goats, sheep, and water buffalo. Cheese is a common food in parts of the world, such as Europe, and uncommon in others, especially China and other parts of East Asia and Southeast Asia.
Some cheeses are made with the addition of herbs and spices. In some locations as a response to the loss of diversity in mass-produced cheeses, a cottage industry has grown up around home cheesemaking.
