Just a few simple ingredients - milk, bacteria and rennet - and you're on your way to creating one of the most sublime foods on Earth. Considered a gift straight from the gods by the Ancients, cheese appears in most civilizations and has had a long and fascinating history. It can be as sophisticated as fine wine or it can be spread in bulk onto the 3 billion pizzas Americans consume annually.

In this mouth-watering episode, MODERN MARVELS® takes you on a voyage of culinary discovery, unlocking the mysteries of this fundamental yet complex food.

From cheddar to brie, Parmesan to blue, take a look at both ancient techniques and new technologies behind some of the world's most popular cheeses. Visit the cow pastures of Wisconsin and the giant cheese factories of California to discover how cheese is made.
