Take bread, for instance. It was widely made with sourdough throughout much of history. Beer and wine are another fermented food that many of us enjoy. But the one food that almost everyone has eaten that can be counted as a fermented food is cheese.
Cheese is plentiful in American melting pot cuisine. It’s in our tacos, atop our pizza, and in our sandwiches. But cheese is a very traditional food, in fact it was born out of the need to preserve milk when there was no electric refrigeration.
