Episode Summary

Tillamook Cheese
First stop is the Tillamook Cheese factory in Tillamook, Oregon. Director of Cheese Operations Wayne Bean acts as John's tour guide and informs him of the process of turning milk into cheese, cheesemaker Dale Baumgartner shows John how to stack curds, and Quality Assurance Sensory Supervisor Butch Seufert (who is known as "The Big Cheese") splits a stick of cheddar with John.
