If cow cheese is made from cow's milk, what is dwarven cheese made of? -- Anon

Dwarven milk is an extract obtained from having a milker milk a purring maggot, and has a value of 2☼. Dwarven milk can be cooked or made into dwarven cheese (worth 20☼ per unit) by a cheese maker at a Farmer's workshop. Using Dwarven cheese as an ingredient thus creates incredibly valuable prepared meals. Further, some dwarves prefer Dwarven milk or cheese and will get a happy thought from it.

Purring maggots are native to subterranean chasms and are not available from the Embark screen, but Dwarven milk can be obtained in good quantities from Dwarven caravans.
