Roquefort, a mythical cheese: it is a cheese that is no longer presented. And yet, few people know that the first mentions of Roquefort can be found in Carolingian texts as early as 1070. Almost 900 years later, in 1925, Roquefort was the first cheese to receive an Appellation d'Origine.
Made in Aveyron: Roquefort has always been made in Aveyron, around Roquefort-sur-Soulzon, which gives it its name. It is a raw milk cheese made from Lacaune sheep's milk and matured in natural caves where the action of penicillium roqueforti gives the cheese the famous blue-veined paste and taste that made its fame.
