Quiz: Cow or Goat Cheese?
by Staff
There are more than 1,400 types of cheese the world over, and depending on the region, the milk for a particular cheese might come from a cow, goat, sheep, water buffalo, camel, reindeer, yak, boar, horse or other milk-producing mammal. Cheese making has a crazy long history -- stretching back as many as 6,000 years -- so see if you can guess which animal's milk is traditionally used for each of these particular cheeses.
