What is cheese cheese?

Yes, cheese is qualified as cheese. The process in which we reach the end product of cheese contains other ingredients however. Milk is separated into a couple of its constituent parts: solid curds and whey (sounds like a nursery rhyme, yeah?). This is accomplished in simple cheese making by adding acid - called acidifying - and adding a product called rennet. The 'cheesing' process also requires some other, more scientific ingredients like bacteria to convert milk sugars into lactic acid, but we will stick to the basics. The overall curd is then processed and ripened to acquire what we know as cheese.
