Roquefort Cheese

350 g per pack

A classic blue cheese, wedge sliced off a whole wheel. It is tagged as "cheese of kings and popes" and considered a celebrity cheese in France, one of the oldest and greatest cheeses and said to have been the favorite of Emperor Charlemagne.

Roquefort is white, tangy, crumbly, and slightly moist, with distinctive veins of green-bluish mold. It has a characteristic pungent aroma and flavor with a notable taste of butyric acid; the veins provide a sharp tang. The overall flavor sensation begins slightly mild, then waxes sweet, then smoky, and fades to a salty finish. It has no rind; the exterior is edible and slightly salty and it can easily crumble into small teeny pieces.

It has a protected designation of origin, only cheese from Roquefort, France can be called Roquefort cheese. Other blue-veined cheeses are called blue cheese. In the limestone caves of the region surrounding Roquefort-sur-Soulzon, where it is most conducive for the mold Penicillium roqueforti to grow, is where the cheese undergoes the final aging process. This cheese is aged for up to 4 months.

Fun trivia!
Legend has it that a shepherd, upon seeing a beautiful girl, abandoned his meal of bread and cheese to pursue her. When he returned some days later, he found his meal covered with blue mold. He still braved it though and ate them and found the cheese to be delicious. Ergo, the birth of Roquefort cheese.
