Lunch in Egypt
بالهنا و الشفاء

Cheese has a long history in Egypt and is an important part of the Egyptian diet. The manufacture of cheese is even depicted in murals in Egyptian tombs. According to legend dated thousand of years ago, an Arab merchant packed a pouch of milk in a sheep-stomach bag for traveling. When he arrived at his destination, the milk had separated into curds and whey as a result of the combination of heat, motion, and rennet in the bag!
