En faire tout un fromage

En faire tout un fromage, literally “to make a whole cheese about it”, means “to make a big fuss about it”. This very informal expression is used to describe an overreaction. It comes from the fact that turning milk into cheese is a big production, the same about people making a big deal about something that is actually very simple.
