    Cheese and Culture

    A History of Cheese and its place in Western Civilization

    A comprehensive look at the 9,000-year history of cheese, the ways in which it has shaped civilization, and what it can tell us about the future of food. Cheese and Culture endeavors to advance our appreciation of cheese origins by viewing human history through the eyes of a cheese scientist.

    This tour through cheese history offers a useful lens through which to view our twenty-first-century attitudes toward cheese that we have inherited from our past, and our attitudes about the food system more broadly.
