Who invented cheese? No one actually knows. According to ancient Greek mythology, Aristaeus was the first person to discover cheese. Some people believed it was created thanks to a happy accident. According to legend, an Arabian trader made the mistake of putting his milk supply in a pouch constructed from the stomach of a sheep before embarking on a journey. The oldest evidence of cheesemaking goes back to 5500 BCE and was discovered in Kuyavia in Poland.
