One of the worlds most ancient cheeses, Roquefort is first mentioned in 79AD, it was also the first cheese to ever receive AOC status.

It is an incredible cheese, the second most popular in France (after Comté). The flavours are complex, sweet from the Lacaune ewes' milk, spicy and tangy from the green veins of mould while also creamy, rich and salty.  Roquefort is aged in caves near Toulouse, the soil of which contains the vital penicillium Roqueforti.
