The curd of milk pressed into a hard mass: also the inflated appearance of a gown or petticoat resulting from whirling round and making a low curtsey; hence, a low curtsey. "What more reasonable thing could she do than amuse herself with making cheeses? that is, whirling round until the petticoat is inflated like a balloon and then sinking into a curtsey."-De Quincey. "She and her sister both made these cheeses in compliment to the new-comer, and with much stately agility."-Thackeray.

An aliment, prepared from the cascous and oleaginous parts of milk. Fresh cheeses owe their chief medical properties to the immediate principle, essentially cheesy, to which the name ca'seum or ca'sein has been applied. Those, which have been recently salted, are digested with comparative facility. The flavour of cheese is owing to an ammoniacal caseate. On the whole, cheese itself is not easy of digestion, although it may stimulate the stomach to greater exertion, and thus aid in the digestion of other substances.
