Later, Cartier would describe the source of the tea as the “tree of life.” The yew tree (top) looks like a pine, but isn’...

An Animated History of Cheese: 10,000 Years in Under Six Minutes

We can now eat cheese nearly anywhere in the world, and most world cuisines seem to have found — to varying degrees of success — ways of working the stuff into their native dishes.
