What's On

Cheese of the Month

Roquefort is made exclusively with raw sheep’s milk. The milk must be pure and whole & from the ‘Lacaune’ breed of sheep only and cannot be homogenized or pasteurised. Cheesemakers first transform the raw milk into a simple cheese with a noble type of mould added to it, the Penicillium roqueforti. Following their preparation in dairy farms, the cheese is salted and then pierced with needles. It is then placed in long rows on top of oak planks lining the natural caves used for ripening. Roquefort is truly exceptional and considered the king of French artisanal cheese.
