    A Brie(f) History of Cheese

      Before empires and royalty, before pottery and writing, before metal tools and weapons – there was cheese.

Today, the world produces roughly 22 billion kilograms of cheese a year, shipped and consumed around the globe. Paul Kindstedt shares the history of one of our oldest and most beloved foods.
