Cheese Press

There are a lot of inventions that were created to make lives easier. It is interesting to know that some inventions were kept alive by traditions starting centuries ago. Without certain invention we wouldn’t have what we have today. Cheese is one of those inventions.

Without the invention of a cheese press hard cheeses would be impossible to create. The most common cheeses before the press was invented were ricotta and cottage cheese. Before the press most cheeses were drained. The tradition of cheese presses has been passed down through the middle ages
