The Cheese Caves Of Roquefort

The pungent odor and tangy taste of the Roquefort cheese, with its distinctive spots and veins of blue-green mold throughout, is not for everyone. But those who appreciate cheese swear it's the best blue cheese in the world.

This particular cheese is produced in the tiny village of Roquefort-sur-Soulzon in southern France. Inside the dank and dark natural caves, where humidity stays above 90%, unpasteurized, whole ewe's milk is slowly ripened and molded into Roquefort cheese.
