Roquefort belongs to the blue cheese family. It is the most consumed cheese in France after the Comté and it is also one of the most renowned blue cheeses with Gorgonzola and Stilton. Roquefort cheese melts fully in the mouth and leaves a pleasant taste of salt and mold. Its very typical character makes it one of the great French cheeses. The Roquefort matures for at least 3 months in the fresh and damp natural caves of the “Combalou” mountain. The cracks in the rock serve as natural ventilation. Roquefort has a cylindrical shape of 20 cm in diameter and is about 9 cm thick. It weighs between 2.5 and 2.9 kg. The mold that gives Roquefort its distinctive character, Penicillium roqueforti, is found in the soil of the local caves and has the ability to ferment the cheese. Traditionally, the cheese makers extract the mold by leaving rye and wheat bread in the caves for six weeks until it is consumed by the mold. The interior of the bread is then use to seed the Roquefort, which is done with a needle. After 4 weeks of maturing, the cheese is wrapped in aluminum foil to prevent pests from eating them.
